DRIVING ban soccer star Dwight Yorke arrived for training in a pounds 130,000 chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce yesterday.

The Manchester United striker lost his licence earlier this week for doing 120mph in his pounds 155,000 Ferrari 550 Maranello.

So millionaire bookmaker pal Selwyn Demmy stepped in and arranged for him to borrow his own luxury motor. A source said: "Selwyn does not use the car in the mornings so had no problem helping Dwight. He's determined to lend a hand during his two-month ban."

Meanwhile, 27-year-old Yorke's team-mates Andy Cole and David Beckham are awaiting their fate in court after being accused of speeding in their Ferrari Maranellos.

Beckham, 24, was captured by a speed camera allegedly doing 76mph in a 40mph zone.

The pair face fines of up to pounds 1,000 with three points on their licences if convicted.
