CARLOS TEVEZ has been ordered to do 250 hours of community service and handed a £1,000 fine after pleading guilty to driving with his licence suspended and without insurance.

The Manchester City striker appeared in court on Thursday, knowing the maximum penalty for driving while disqualified is six months in prison.

Macclesfield magistrates heard Tevez has not yet got a UK driving license, partly because he has struggled to pass the theory test which is in English.

Tevez was banned from driving for six months in January after failing to respond to letters by police about speeding - but he was stopped by police while driving a sports car on March 7 following an anonymous tip-off.

Kate Marchuk, prosecuting, told the court a police officer was called to the Mottram Hall Hotel and Golf Club in Cheshire at around 4pm on March 7.

She said: "There had been a call, from an anonymous caller, that the defendant had driven a white Range Rover to the golf club whilst disqualified.

"The officer confirmed this on the Police National Computer."

Miss Marchuk said Tevez had been disqualified from driving on January 16 until May 25.

Tevez, who lives in nearby Alderley Edge, did not get into the Range Rover on leaving at around 5pm, instead getting into a white Porsche Cayenne before driving off.

He was stopped nearby and arrested for driving while disqualified and having no insurance.

He told the officer: "I only live down the road. Two minutes."

Tevez was taken to the police station and later bailed but at a second interview made no reply to police questions.
