Basketball great Charles Barkley is heading to jail after pleading guilty to two drink driving charges.

Barkley has been sentenced to 10 days in jail and fined $2,000 (£1,380). His jail time will be halved if he completes an alcohol counselling class.

Barkley will begin his sentence on 21 March, according to TMZ.com.
