Juventus and Argentina striker Carlos Tevez has had his driving licence suspended after being caught speeding through the Mont Blanc Tunnel, Italian media reported on Thursday.

Tevez was clocked exceeding the 70km/h limit in the tunnel, which separates Italy from France, although his actual speed was not revealed.

The incident took place Wednesday, the day after Tevez had scored in the 2-1 Champions League semi-final win over Real Madrid in Turin.

The 31-year-old Tevez is no stranger to falling foul of the rules of the road.

In March 2013, when he was at Manchester City, he was arrested for driving without a licence while serving a six-month ban imposed for speeding.

He was eventually fined €1,400 and ordered to perform 250 hours of community service.
