London: Fresh from his ban for an ugly spat with Marlon Samuels during an Australian Twenty20 match, cricket great Shane Warne found himself in trouble on the other side of the world Tuesday with a speeding fine.

Warne, 43, was fined £500 ($803, 614 euros) after admitting driving at more than 100 miles (160 kilometres) per hour on a south of Scotland motorway where the maximum speed is 70mph.

He escaped a driving ban, but had five penalty points put on his licence at a court in the town of Dumfries, south of Glasgow.
