Defender Sebastien Bassong was stopped by police on September 27 near London’s King’s Cross and officers found the baton in the pocket of the driver’s door.

The 26-year-old admitted at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on Monday to possessing an offensive weapon.

On top of the £1,000 fine, he was also made to pay a victim surcharge of £100 and costs of £85.

The baton will be destroyed.

A spokeswoman for the football club declined to comment on the case.
