A former Premier League footballer has admitted a charge of dangerous driving after a three-car crash left a motorist with a broken arm.

Ex-Sheffield United striker Marlon King committed the offence on his 33rd birthday while driving a Porsche Panamera on the A46 in Nottinghamshire last April.

The 35-year-old victim was airlifted to hospital after the collision at Winthorpe, near Newark, on the afternoon of April 26.

King, of Torksey, Lincolnshire, was due to go on trial at Nottingham Crown Court today after pleading not guilty to a charge of dangerous driving at an earlier hearing.

The footballer, who appeared in the dock wearing a blue suit and open-necked white shirt, changed his plea to one of guilty to the charge this morning.
