1 stopper Hugo Lloris from driving for 20 months and fined £50,000 after pleading guilty to drink-driving.
The court was told the 31-year-old provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, more than twice the legal limit in England and Wales.
An unmarked police car had spotted Lloris - who captained Les Bleus to World Cup glory in Russia on July 15 - as he drove his Porsche Panamera in the early hours, with prosecutor Henry Fitch claiming the player went through a red light before being stopped.
Fitch also told the court that police saw Lloris driving at 15mph in a 30mph zone, and veering towards parked cars before correcting himself.
He featured in Spurs' first game after his initial arrest - a 3-0 victory at Manchester United - but was left out of the squad for the following game against Watford due to injury.
Meanwhile, it is expected that the French goalkeeper might be in action this Saturday when Spur battle with Liverpool.
