London - Everton midfielder Darron Gibson was banned from driving for 20 months and sentenced to a 12-month community order on Tuesday after he collided with three cyclists and drove off.
Republic of Ireland international Gibson was over the legal drink-drive limit when his vehicle mounted a pavement and struck the men who had stopped to fix a broken bicycle chain.
The former Manchester United player sped off in his black Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo before he pulled into a nearby petrol station on the morning of August 16.
Police were eventually called by a garage attendant after Gibson hit a petrol pump and began filling his vehicle with fuel while wearing no shoes.
Gibson was arrested and taken to a police station where he gave a positive reading of 57 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit being 35.
He entered guilty pleas at Trafford Magistrates' Court to driving with excess alcohol, driving without due care and attention and failing to stop after a accident had occurred.
The 27-year-old must perform 200 hours of unpaid work as part of his community sentence and was ordered to pay 4500 ($6900) in damages caused to one of the bikes, a carbon composite model which was written off.
He was ordered to pay 1000 compensation to the cyclist who he directly hit, 100 each to the two other men and was also told to pay 295 court costs.
