Robinho arrested over alleged sexual assault

Manchester City midfielder Robinho has been arrested by police in relation to an alleged sexual assault at a Leeds nightclub on January 14. A spokesman for the 25-year-old Brazil international told reporters that Robinho denied all allegations.

A student has alleged that Robinho, real name Robson de Souza, was involved in an incident at the Space nightclub in the morning of January 14. The allegations come just a week after the Brazilian hit the headlines after walking out of Manchester City's training break in Tenerife.

Robinho, who smashed the British transfer record with his £32.5m summer move from Real Madrid, has been released by police and looks set to take part in City's game tonight against Newcastle.
