Sexual assault: McGregor awaits physical test, video evidence

first_imgRelatedPosts Sexual assault charge: UFC superstar denies allegation, released without charge Mayweather mocks McGregor Conor McGregor retires from UFC Conor McGregor is waiting for the results of “key physical tests” and “the examination of film evidence” before learning whether he will be re-arrested over alleged sexual assault and indecent exposure.The Ultimate Fighting Championship star was taken into police custody on the French holiday island of Corsica last Friday, following a complaint from a young woman. She has claimed the 32-year-old Irishman assaulted her and showed off his manhood following a heavy drinking session in the upmarket port town of Calvi on September 6.Teofimo Lopez discuses the highly-anticipated upcoming fight against Vasyl Lomachenko, who is the favourite and his strategy in the ring.McGregor was released on Saturday without charge, but the criminal case is still active and he could be summoned before a magistrate later this week.“Key physical tests were carried out on the suspect, but the results will not be known until after the weekend,” an investigating source said.“These tests are of a routine nature following incidents like this, but they take time, to make sure there is no doubt about them. “It is also possible that the incident being complained about was filmed. It took place in a very busy place, where fixed cameras are situated everywhere.“Lots of holidaymakers would also have been filming and taking pictures on their phones, so they also need to be spoken to.”Tests for alcohol and drugs are common when suspects are arrested by police in France, especially following accusations of assault.Formal allegations were made against McGregor to police last Thursday, by an as-yet unnamed complainant, believed to be the woman victim.This led to police raiding McGregor’s £3 million yacht, which was named locally as the “Dave Ocean”, the next day. McGregor made his way to the local Tramariccia Gendarmerie by bike on Friday, surrounded by bodyguards, and was then grilled by an examining magistrate and judicial police.“The suspect was arrested and placed in custody by the judicial authorities,” said a spokesman for the Bastia prosecutor. “He was released on Saturday.”Tags: Conor McGregorCorsicaUltimate Fighting Championshiplast_img read more

Hazard and Costa fire warning of Chelsea’s title ambitions

first_imgBy Martyn HermanLONDON,(Reuters)-Chelsea’s points tally after 10 games shows they are twice as good as they were at this stage of last season’s Premier League campaign, which considering the form of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa is hardly surprising.They were both on target yesterday as Chelsea outclassed Southampton 2-0 to move into fourth spot with 22 points — just one behind Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.The poor form and questionable appetite of both Costa and Hazard was blamed partly for Chelsea’s dire start to last season that ultimately cost manager Jose Mourinho his job.However, the duo who helped fire Chelsea to the 2014-15 title are thriving once again in Antonio Conte’s 3-4-3 system.Hazard’s opener after six minutes meant he has scored in three consecutive Premier League games and has five for the season. This time last year he had failed to register and did not score his first league goal until April.Likewise, Costa, looking again like the marauding bruiser who ran defences ragged when he first arrived at Stamford Bridge rather than the disinterested figure he cut early last season, already has eight league goals to his credit.It took him until January to reach that total last season and he had managed just two in the league when Mourinho was sacked.His second-half effort, a curling shot from 25 metres, was sublime but it was his work rate across the pitch that rubbed off on the Spain international’s team mates.“When you see Eden and Diego, and Pedro, working very hard during the game, you are happy,” Conte said of his front three.“They are strikers and usually it’s a bit difficult for the strikers to work for the team, but their commitment and work-rate is fantastic.”Chelsea’s defending too has been unrecognisable this season. They have conceded nine goals compared to the 19 they had already leaked after 10 games under Mourinho a year ago.Even with skipper John Terry fit to return yesterday, Brazilian David Luiz was again preferred alongside Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta and did not put a foot out of place.“I’m very happy after this performance. I saw great commitment, work rate — with the ball and without it. For the fourth game we keep a clean sheet, it’s fantastic,” Conte said.“It’s early for us to speak about title contenders. We have to work very hard to continue. We can improve a lot. We must improve.”last_img read more
