Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Steven Pienaar, who is on loan at Everton, has been fined £1 000 and had seven points added to his driving licence - after telling a court he missed a previous hearing because he moved house, according to the bournelocal.co.uk website.

The 30-year-old Bafana Bafana international was previously found guilty in his absence of failing to disclose who was driving his Aston Martin DBS after it was twice caught speeding last October.

As he appeared in a secure dock wearing blue jeans and a black jacket, he laughed as the court clerk told magistrates: "Apparently he's a footballer. I'm not a football fan."

His lawyer, Gwynn Lewis, said Pienaar had missed the hearing after moving from his previous address in Theydon Road, Epping, Essex, to Ibbotson Lane, Liverpool, when he was loaned back to former club Everton by Tottenham in January.

Prosecutor Joseph Stickings told the court the Aston Martin was caught by a fixed speed camera on Lambourne Road, Chigwell, doing 38mph in a 30mph zone on October 10 and again doing 43mph on the same road on October 21.

Pienaar paid the fine of £1 000 plus £175 in legal costs and a victim surcharge before leaving court. He was given three points for the 38mph offence and four for the 43mph offence.
