England bowler Graeme Swann has been charged with drink-driving, police said today.

The spinner, rated third best bowler in the world according to the International Cricket Council's rankings, was arrested after being stopped by officers in Nottingham in April.

"Graeme Swann, 31, was charged on June 8 with driving a motor vehicle when the alcohol level was above the limit," a Nottinghamshire police spokeswoman said.

He is due to appear before Nottingham magistrates on Aug. 16.
