'This is the worst day of my life' - Bendtner apologizes after DUI arrest

The Danish forward has expressed his regret in court after being found under the influence while behind the wheel, which has seen him banned from his national team for six months.

Juventus striker Nicklas Bendtner has apologized after being banned from international football for six months following a DUI offense.

The Denmark international, who is on loan at the Serie A club from Arsenal, has scored 22 goals in 55 games for his country but will miss a number of World Cup qualifiers after being caught driving on the wrong side of the road on Saturday evening.

"I am incredibly sorry for my actions. I can truly say, that this is the worst day of my life," Bendtner said while speaking in front of the Copenhagen District Court. "At the same time I take full responsibility for it, for what I have done, but I must go on. I cannot describe how much pain I am going through, but now I want to do all I can to come back strong."

Bendtner's spell with the Italian champions has been blighted by injury. The 25-year-old has yet to score since moving to Turin and has made just eight appearances in Serie A.
