Manchester City forward Robinho has been arrested and bailed by police investigating an alleged sex assault at a nightclub in Leeds on 14 January.

His spokesman, Chris Nathaniel, said: “[Robinho] strenuously denies any allegation of wrongdoing or criminality and is happy to co-operate with the police if further required.”

In a statement Manchester City FC said it had been “liaising with and assisting both the player in question and the authorities in relation to the West Yorkshire Police investigation. “Both parties have been given the full support of the football club. No charges of any nature have been brought against the player and no further statement will be made whilst the investigation is continuing,” the statement added.
