Premier League footballer Kurt Zouma has been ordered to carry out 180 hours' community service and banned from keeping cats for five years after kicking and slapping his pet in a disturbing home video posted on Snapchat.

The 27-year-old West Ham defender showed no emotion as he was handed the sentence at Thames Magistrates' Court in east London on Wednesday.
