British singer CHERYL COLE's soccer star husband Ashley Cole has been found guilty of speeding at more than twice the legal limit in the U.K.
The England and Chelsea hero was caught driving at 104 miles per hour/167 kilometres per hour in a 50 mph (80 kph) area in south-west London in November 2008.
Cole told police officers he was speeding to escape paparazzi and didn't realise how fast he was driving - but a judge at Kingston Magistrates' Court dismissed his defence on Monday (04Jan10) and found him guilty.
Cole is due to be sentenced on 29 January (10). He faces a driving ban.
