Wright – a former-forward for Arsenal – was also handed a £1,000 fine.

A source close to Wright 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.
