A QPR footballer has been arrested on suspicion of rape this morning.

Striker Loic Remy, 26, was held with two other men age 22 and 23 at an address in Fulham, west London.

All three are being questioned by officers from Operation Sapphire in connection with an alleged sex attack on a 34-year-old woman involving three men on May 6.

A Met spokesman said: “On the morning of May 15 three men, 26, 23, and 22, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape - they remain in custody at a west London police station.”

The French international joined QPR in January for £8 million but was unable to help the team avoid relegation from the Premier League.

He is expected to leave the west London club this summer, with top clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool reported to be interested in signing him.
