Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy has been charged with rape.
According to Cheshire Police, the 27-year-old defender has been charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.
The charges relate to three complainants over the age of 16 and are alleged to have taken place between October 2020 and August 2021.
Mr Mendy, of Prestbury, has been remanded in custody and will appear at Chester Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
The left-back has played for last season’s English Premier League champions since 2017, when he joined from Monaco for a reported 52 Million Pounds Transfer Fee.
Manchester City said the defender, who also plays for the French national team, had been suspended pending an investigation.
