Vidal given two-year driving ban

The 28-year-old crashed his Ferrari while under the influence of alcohol in his native Chile and his punishments have now been confirmed.

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has been given a two-year driving ban after being caught drunk driving during Chile's victorious Copa America campaign.

The 28-year-old crashed his Ferrari on June 17, and though he escaped unhurt, his wife sustained a minor elbow injury.

Though he was subsequently charged formally with driving under the influence of alcohol, he was able to play a full role in the rest of the tournament but his punishments have now been confirmed.

His license has been suspended for two years, while he will have to donate a variety of memorabilia to the local services affected by the incident.

Vidal also insulted the two police officers who attended the scene of the incident but will now issue a public apology for his actions.
