England football legend Paul Gascoigne has been given a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to a drink-driving charge.

The troubled star, who has a long history of alcohol problems, was charged with drink-driving on October 8 after he was pulled over by police in Newcastle.

Gazza, 43, was found to be driving while more than four times the legal alcohol limit.

After pleading guilty to the charge, Gazza was handed an eight-week sentence, suspended for a year, and banned from driving for three years.

The England favourite declined to comment as he left court but signed autographs for fans who braved the cold outside Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.
