England and Chelsea football captain John Terry has been fined 100 for not telling police who was driving when his car was clocked speeding in Surrey.

The 25-year-old's vehicle was caught going over the 50mph limit by a speed camera on the A3 Esher bypass, near Chelsea FC's Cobham training ground.

He was then charged with not providing details as to the driver's identity.

He was not at a Guildford magistrates' hearing in July, and was also not present for his sentencing on Friday.

Terry had three points put on his driving licence and was also ordered to pay 200 court costs.

The speeding incident took place on 18 October last year.

"Despite several letters Mr Terry failed to respond with details of who was driving on the day," a spokesman for Surrey Police's safety camera partnership said.
