The 28-year-old Argentinian mimicked driving a vehicle after he scored twice in City's 5-0 win at home to Aston Villa in the Premier League on 17 November.

Two days earlier his Porsche Panamera was impounded in Manchester as he could not produce a full UK driving licence.

Lancaster magistrates have now imposed an interim ban on Tevez for a separate matter in which he failed to provide information when his car was clocked speeding in Morecambe.

It is understood his vehicle was caught breaking the speed limit in the town on 28 March when he played for City's reserves against Morecambe Reserves.

His solicitor, Gwyn Lewis, told the court his client, who was not in court, accepted he did not provide identification - which carries six penalty points - and that under the totting-up procedure he was now liable for disqualification.

Mr Lewis said: "My instructions are though he was not the driver on that occasion I am not going to argue against a ban on grounds of exceptional hardship."

He asked the magistrates to impose an interim disqualification and adjourn sentencing so that the "no licence case" from Manchester could be dealt with at the same time.

The magistrates agreed and listed the matter in Lancaster for 20 December when the length of the suspension will be set.
