FOOTBALL star Ashley Cole was today found guilty of driving at more than 100mph in a 50mph zone.

The Chelsea and England left back, who did not attend court for his trial, was in his black Lamborghini Gallardo on the A3 in Kingston, Surrey, when a speed gun recorded him driving at 104mph.

Cole, 29, denied the charge, claiming he was being chased by paparazzi at the time of the incident in November 2008.

But he was convicted today at Kingston Magistrates' Court.

The sentencing was adjourned until January 29 so that Cole could be present. Magistrates warned that he may be banned from driving.
