West Ham footballer Samir Nasri faces a possible driving ban after his car was clocked going 60mph in a 30mph zone in Redbridge.
The midfielder, 31, pleaded guilty by post last month to a speeding offence over an incident before he signed for the club.
His Mercedes was recorded driving at twice the legal limit by a speed camera in a 30mph zone in Painters Road, Newbury Park at 12.45pm on November 16, according to the charge.
“The speed recorded by means of ProLaser 4 was 60 miles per hour,” it states.
“The speed limit was signified by street lighting placed at less than 200-yard intervals.”
