London: Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez was disqualified from driving for six months on Wednesday, after a court heard he failed to understand a letter sent to him by police.

The 28-year-old Argentina international, who did not attend the hearing at a court in Manchester, was also ordered to pay £1,540 ($2,469, 1,855 euros) in fines and costs.

Tevez pleaded guilty to two counts of failing to provide information relating to incidents when his car was clocked speeding.
