ENGLAND and Chelsea football star Ashley Cole was today banned from driving after he was caught doing more than 100mph in a 50mph zone.

The left-back claimed he was being chased by paparazzi when a speed gun recorded him driving his black Lamborghini Gallardo at 104mph on the A3 in Kingston on November 17, 2008.

But magistrates at Kingston today imposed a four-month ban and �1,000 fine.

Cole's legal team immediately launched a bid against the ban which will be considered later.

He was also ordered to pay a �15 victim surcharge and �300 costs to reflect his income and the seriousness of the offence.
