Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole has been found guilty of driving at 104mph in a 50mph zone in south-west London.

The player, who's married to X Factor judge Cheryl Cole, was caught speeding in his Lamborghini on the A3 in Kingston in November 2008.

He wasn't in court, but said he was trying to get away from photographers.

The midfielder said he thought he was driving at around 80mph, and his lawyer said she thought that the speed gun wasn't working properly.

He will be given his punishment at the end of January and has been warned be might be banned from driving.
