The Chelsea Football Club footballer Callum Hudson-Odoi, was arrested by the Metropolitan Police after a woman accused him of rape. The 19-year-old was arrested on Sunday morning but has since been released on bail.

The woman, an unnamed model, alleged that the talented forward raped her in his West-London apartment after they met online. The model claimed that she had met Hudson-Odoi online and had gone to his penthouse home after he asked her to visit him wearing only lingerie.

A police spokesman said: “Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday, 17 May to a report of an unwell woman. When emergency services attended, a woman reported that she was raped. She was taken to hospital. A man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of rape. He was released from custody and bailed to return on a date in mid-June.”

The police returned to Hudson-Odoi’s property on Sunday to continue their investigations into the matter. A representative of Hudson-Odoi: “He says he’s innocent. That’s all you need to know. He’s innocent, he hasn’t done anything wrong. We’ve got no other comment to make.”

Mr Hudson-Odoi was recently in the news after he was diagnosed with coronavirus on March 12, 2020.
