SHANE WARNE may still be the spin king but he now faces claims of being a speed king.

The champion cricketer, who helped launch a road safety campaign last month, could lose his licence after he was charged for speeding at 165km/h while in Scotland in September.

The Herald Scotland has reported Warne is alleged to have driven his Jaguar XFR V8 at 53km/h over the speed limit, near the town of Dumfries, on September 17.

Warne's manager, James Erskine, did not return calls on Saturday.

Last month, Warne fronted the launch of the Transport Accident Commission's Homesafely initiative in Victoria, representing his Twenty20 side Melbourne Stars alongside Melbourne Renegades skipper Aaron Finch.
