The 29-year-old failed to stop as he was pursued by police. A court heard how he switched between lanes on a busy motorway in August.

Santos evaded police as he drove his Maserati on the A1 and M25 in Hertfordshire. He eventually pulled over and was arrested close to Arsenal's training ground.

He was also ordered to pay £3,600 in fines and costs.
