Former Arsenal striker and MotD presenter Ian Wright banned from driving after speeding on motorbike

Former Arsenal forward and England player Ian Wright has been banned from driving for six months.

BBC Match of the Day presenter Wright, 57, admitted speeding before magistrates.

The striker was caught riding his Triumph motorbike at 69 mph in a 40 mph zone.


He was also fined £1,000.

A friend told The Sun:

“Ian was caught speeding on his motorbike a few times and held his hands up.

“He isn’t proud of his actions and hasn’t contested the ban.

“Obviously, it’s a bit embarrassing for him but he made a mistake and now he is paying for it.”

Wright appeared at Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court without a solicitor and admitted to speeding.

Wright made 288 appearances for Arsenal and scored 185 goals.

He scored nine international goals playing for England and earned 33 caps.
