England rugby international Mike Tindall was stopped by in March, just a day after attending a party at the Cheltenham Racing Festival Princess Anne's daughter Zara.

A spokesperson for his rugby team Gloucester said: "Although Mike is unable to comment any further while the case is ongoing he fully recognises the potential dangers of drink-driving and will issue a full statement when the case has been concluded.

"In the meantime, Mike remains totally focused on his rugby and ensuring a successful end to Gloucester's season."

Tindall has been bailed by police to appear before magistrates in Reading on May 14.

Earlier this week, Zara revealed she is waiting for Tindal to propose.

The 26-year-old royal is keen to tie the knot with the sports star but believes it should be him who pops the question.

The blonde beauty, who has been dating Tindall for four years, said: "I'm old-fashioned. I think they should ask you. Everyone at the Gloucester rugby club seems to be getting married and having babies so they keep asking me, 'What about you?' We tell each other we love each other every day."
