QPR Striker Loïc Rémy Bailed Following Rape Allegation

The QPR striker Loïc Rémy has been bailed following his arrest on suspicion of rape.
The 26-year-old France international had been held by Scotland Yard's sex crime squad together with two other men.
Three men have been bailed until September, the Metropolitan Police said on Thursday.
A 34-year-old woman alleges that three men raped her on 6 May in west London.
Rémy's lawyers said on Thursday that he denies the claim that has been made, but is not able to make any further comment.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police had said: "Officers from Sapphire are investigating an allegation of rape which happened on 6 May in the west London area.
"The allegation was passed on to the Metropolitan police service by Kent police on 8 May after the 34-year-old female victim reported it to them on the previous day, 7 May. The victim alleges she was raped by three men.
"On the morning of Wednesday, 15 May, three men, aged 26, 23 and 22, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape – they remain in custody at a west London police station."
Rémy joined QPR in January for £8m but was unable to help the team avoid relegation from the Premier League.
He was expected to leave the London club this summer, with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool reportedly interested in signing him.
