Idowu facing drink-drive charges
Olympic triple jumper Phillips Idowu is due to appear in court to face drink drive charges.
Idowu, 34, of Epping, is alleged to have been more than twice the drink-drive limit while driving a Land Rover in Bridge Hill in the Essex town on September 20.
He is due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court on Monday.
Idowu won silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics but failed to get beyond the qualifying rounds at London 2012.
He was made an MBE in 2011 for services to athletics and recently appeared on the BBC's Celebrity Masterchef programme.
