Footballer Loic Remy will face no further action following his arrest over rape claims.

The 27-year-old Newcastle striker was held in May last year along with two other men after a woman alleged she had been attacked in Fulham, west London.

The three were told on Thursday they would face no further action over the allegations.

At the time of Remy's arrest, the French international, who is on loan from QPR, denied the allegation.
