Chrstian Benteke: Crystal Palace striker’s sentencing for speeding offences adjourned

The sentencing of Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke for speeding offences has been adjourned for seven weeks so that other police matters can be linked to the court proceedings.

The 28-year-old is facing a possible driving ban after he was caught speeding twice in the space of two months earlier this year.

Benteke, of Kingston Hill, Surrey, has previously admitted driving his Bentley at 80mph in a 50mph zone on the A3 in Richmond, south-west London, on January 20.

The Belgian was later clocked hitting 89mph, more than double the 40mph limit, on another section of the same road in Putney on March 11.

The footballer was not present at a short hearing at Lavender Hill Magistrates’ Court in London on Friday, where his sentencing was delayed for several weeks.
