The young man was caught doing 227 km per hour near Latsia, on the Nicosia-Limassol highway at 7.20 am on Saturday. The speed limit is 100 km.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and the court ordered he remain in custody until Wednesday when the hearing will continue with the presentation of the facts of the case and sentencing.
