Everton midfielder Darron Gibson has been charged by police with drink-driving after a 'collision' with a cyclist and petrol pump.

The Republic of Ireland international failed to stop after colliding with a cyclist before hitting a petrol pump.

Reports suggest Gibson was driving a £125,000 Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo when he was involved in an accident, which occurred near to his home.
