Harry Kane reveals Hugo Lloris has apologised to his Tottenham team-mates after being charged with drink-driving.

The Spurs skipper was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning, but still featured in his side’s 3-0 victory away at Manchester United on Monday.

He is expected to lead the team out once again at Watford on Sunday and Kane insists the players are 100% behind their captain.

“He apologised to the team,” Kane said. “He knows it wasn’t right what he did.

“Look, from my point of view, Hugo’s a very good guy, he works very hard, so it’s been put to bed from our point of view.

“Obviously he’ll have to deal with whatever comes his way from the law side of things, but he kept his head down, he apologised, worked hard and went out there and played well today.”

Lloris helped provide Tottenham with the platform to win after denying Romelu Lukaku moments after Kane opened the scoring.
