Adam Johnson: Footballer played at highest level

Adam Johnson had a glittering career, playing football at the top level before he took advantage of his position by grooming a teenage girl.

Johnson was capped 12 times for England and won the Premier League and FA Cup while at Manchester City.

He made his debut for Middlesbrough aged 17, and also played on loan at Watford and Leeds United.

But when he was at Sunderland he used his position in society to engage in sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

He was sacked by Sunderland in February after admitting sexual activity with a child and grooming.
