Sessegnon banned for drink driving
West Bromwich Albion striker Stephane Sessegnon has been banned from driving for 20 months for getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol.
Sessegnon, a Sunderland player at the time of the offence in August, also pleaded guilty to driving without a licence or insurance.
The 29-year-old, appearing at Newcastle Magistrates' Court, was fined £7,605.
The court heard Sessegnon was more than double the drink-driving limit when he was stopped by police in Newcastle after Sunderland's 4-2 win over MK Dons in the League Cup.
