Denmark have suspended striker Nicklas Bendtner from international football for six months following his drink-driving arrest.
The Arsenal forward, who is currently on loan at Italian outfit Juventus, was reportedly caught driving on the wrong side of the road in Copenhagen on Saturday evening.
The 25-year-old later apologised for his actions, but he has not escaped punishment from his national side.
"Dear friends, I was booked for a mild case of drink driving last night. It was a quiet night but I am very very sorry to all my friends and fans. It is not OK to drink and drive. I take full responsibility," he tweeted.
Bendtner is currently recovering from a thigh injury.
