Graeme Swann wasn’t getting much sympathy yesterday after he revealed in a Nottingham Magistrates Court the reason he was driving at 3am while under the influence was because he was trying to save his cat Max – who was trapped under the floorboards.
Swann, not pleased by this comment, responded: “Such a shame my teammates are so remedial in their ‘banter’. Must be because they’re all south African… Yes you kelvin”
The case has been adjourned until the 7th October.
