MOST COMMENTED

Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy was arrested on suspicion of rape on Tuesday after a 34-year-old woman claimed she was drugged at Remy’s apartment in the Fulham district of London on May 6. Remy, a 26-year-old France international, was arrested along with his cousin and a friend.

The alleged assault took place two days after QPR lost a home game against Arsenal. The woman claims that she lost consciousness after she was handed a drink shortly after showing up at the apartment. When she came to hours later, the three men were still present. She then made a complaint to police and the trio was arrested Tuesday morning.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "Officers from the Sapphire crime unit are investigating an allegation of rape." In a statement QPR said: "The club is aware of the allegations regarding Loic Remy but due to police investigations is unable to comment."

Remy joined QPR in January, scoring six goals in 13 appearances, but is expected to leave the club this summer after QPR was relegated to the League Championship.
