David Beckham has been given a six-month driving ban for using his mobile phone while behind the wheel.
The former England captain previously pleaded guilty to using the device while driving his Bentley in central London on 21 November last year.
Beckham, 44, received six points on his licence to add to the six he already had for previous speeding matters.
He was also fined £750, ordered to pay £100 in prosecution costs and a £75 surcharge fee within seven days.
District Judge Catherine Moore said she acknowledged the slow pace of the traffic but told him there was “no excuse” under the law.
It was revealed that Beckham found driving a relaxing pastime – “He takes his children to school each day when he can and he picks them up when he can, and actually to deprive them of that is something that he will acknowledge…”
