Newcastle United midfielder Cheick Tiote has escaped jail this afternoon after admitting driving with a forged Belgian licence which he had bought from a stranger near Brussels airport for €15,000.
The 27-year-old was given an seven month prison sentence for the offence but a judge told him it would be suspended keeping him out of prison unless he breaks the law again.
