Controversial Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez has been arrested after allegedly driving while disqualified, according to reports.

The Argentine was banned from driving in January for a variety of speeding offences, but was taken into custody at Macclesfield police station on Thursday evening, after being stopped by officers.

Cheshire police said in a statement: "At 5.13pm on Thursday 7 March police arrested a 29-year-old man from Alderley Edge on the A538 in Macclesfield on suspicion of driving while disqualified. He has since been released on police bail."
