London: Ivory Coast football great Yaya Toure has been banned from driving for 18 months and fined £54,000 ($68,500, 64,600 euros) for drink driving, he said on Facebook yesterday.

The 33-year-old Manchester City midfielder insisted though he imbibed the alcohol by accident.

Toure is a Muslim. "Over the last two weeks there has been some confusion as to why I was charged with drink driving, as it is well known that I am a Muslim and do not drink," wrote Toure, who was stopped last month while driving in east London and found to be over the limit.
