Soccer star Hunt admits speeding

IRISH football star Stephen Hunt has pleaded guilty to driving over the speed limit.

The winger, who plays for Ipswich Town, was caught driving at 89mph in his Mercedes along a 70mph stretch of dual carriageway on September 18 last year.

He was unable to appear in court in Suffolk but he sent a letter in which he said he was "sorry," and that he understood the reasons for complying with the limit.

Three penalty points were added to his licence and he was also fined £120.
