Oscar-winning Italian actor Roberto Benigni’s driving licence has been withdrawn after traffic wardens caught him overtaking a queue of cars in Rome and swerving into the oncoming lane.
Benigni was also fined 163 euros over the incident which happened on Thursday - his 64th birthday.
One of Italy’s most famous actors and comedians, Benigni won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his 1997 movie Life is Beautiful. Co-written and directed by Benigni, it also won the Oscar for best foreign-language film.
Benigni was a guest at US President Barack Obama’s last state dinner in Washington on October 18 together with Italian Premier Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini.
