Olympic swimmer Wallace suspended after drink-driving

Dan Wallace shot to fame with his "for freedom" celebration after winning the 400m at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014

Olympic swimmer Dan Wallace has been suspended from the British and Scottish swimming programmes for three months after pleading guilty to drink-driving.

British and Scottish Swimming called it "clearly unacceptable behaviour".

"It is with much regret that I was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol," said the 24-year-old, who trains at Stirling University.

"Not only have I let myself, my family and team-mates down, I have put others at risk and I am profoundly sorry."

In May 2014, the former Warrender Baths Club swimmer was arrested in Florida, where he was attending the state university, for urinating on a police car.
