After his initial arrest he was later re-arrested on suspicion of two more counts from April and June 2021.

The June allegation was later dropped by police.

The player has not been suspended by his club and is in one of the 32 squads at the World Cup,

Scotland Yard said: “On 4 July, an allegation of rape of a woman in her 20s was reported to police.

“It was reported the alleged rape happened in June 2022.

“While in custody, he was further arrested on suspicion of two incidents of rape that were alleged to have been committed in April and June of 2021 against a different woman in her 20s.

“No further action will be taken in relation to the alleged offence in June 2021 because the relevant legislation had not yet come into effect at the time it is said to have occurred.
