    BBC pundit and former England footballer Eni Aluko cries as she leaves court in Barbados

    BBC pundit and former England footballer Eni Aluko cries as she leaves court in Barbados after she was warned for breaching coronavirus quarantine by leaving her hotel and taking public transport

    • Eni Aluko, 33, was left in tears outside court in Barbados after she was caught breaching the country’s quarantine rules for visitors on social media
    • The former England footballer was seen on social media after she left her hotel
    • She stayed at the Little Arches Hotel as she waited for her Covid-19 test results 
    • The results – which came back negative – were delayed but she still left the hotel  

    Former England footballer Eni Aluko was left weeping as she left court in Barbados following a breach of her coronavirus quarantine. 

    Aluko, 33, was reprimanded for leaving her hotel accommodation and taking public transport on Friday despite her Covid-19 test results being delayed. 

    She was spotted on social media and after images surfaced on social media, she was tracked down by Barbadian officials and given a warning in court.    

    The BBC pundit was charged with disobeying the order of the Chief Medical Officer and was left in tears as she was escorted out of court.

    Aluko’s results eventually came back negative for Covid-19 but at the time she left her hotel that was undetermined and her actions were considered a risk to general population. 

    Magistrate Douglas Frederick, who oversaw Aluko’s hearing, warned the former England international that her venture out of the hotel placed others at risk. 

    Aluko said in her defence that she was confused by the rules on movement as she waited for her results, and she was not prevented from leaving by the hotel.  

    Barbados has recorded 138 Covid-19 cases and of those so far there have 108 recoveries and seven deaths.

    Aluko, England Women’s 10th most-capped player, stayed at the five-star Little Arches Hotel during her stay in Barbados, with prices starting at £228-a-night. 

    When questioned the BBC pundit accepted that she was aware that as a visitor to Barbados, she knew she was supposed to stay indoors until the Covid-19 test results came back.  

    ‘I came here on the basis that there were more relaxed rules,’ Aluko was reported to have said in court by Barbadian publication Nation News

    ‘I love Barbados. I came here in 2015. I came here for vacation. I would never, ever try to break any rules.

    ‘I understand that I should have waited on the test. I didn’t think I had to, I thought I had to wait a maximum of time. Honestly, your worship if they had stopped me from leaving. I would have complied.’

    With the hearing concluded, Aluko stood in tears on the steps of the court and said that while she was not fined or imprisoned for her actions, she was planning to pay a fine regardless as an acceptance of her wrongdoing. 

    The offer made by Aluko was said to have been seen as a sign of contrition by Magistrate Frederick.
