Hornets striker Troy Deeney has been fined for driving a car with tinted windows that were "dangerously" dark.

Police pulled over the footballer in his Mercedes Benz on London's A406 North Circular Road on May 9.

Wimbledon Magistrates' Court heard the arresting officer classed the windows as "dangerous for pedestrians" and ordered Deeney not to drive at night.

Tests showed the car's windows were below the legal limit for light penetration.

The footballer made the "necessary changes within a short period of time" and the car, which had been bought with the windows already tinted, is now legally compliant.

Deeney pleaded guilty to driving a car in a dangerous condition at court on Monday.

He initially attended court but left before his case was dealt with, as his lawyer said he had to undergo medical treatment. He has not played since the middle of August due to a knee injury.

He was fined £650, ordered to pay £150 in costs and was given a £65 surcharge.
