Manchester City midfielder, Yaya Toure, once rejected a champagne gift because he is a devout Muslim – but he has now been charged to court with drink driving.

The Ivorian was driving in Dagenham in east London at the time of the alleged offence, BBC reports.

Police said he was charged on Tuesday with driving while his alcohol level was above the legal limit.

He has been bailed and is due to appear at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on 13 December.

Toure came in as substitute in the 76th minute in Manchester City’s 3-1 defeat at the Etihad stadium to Chelsea on Saturday.

In 2012, Toure spoke about being a devout Muslim and refused a champagne man of the match award due to his religious beliefs.
