Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy is among three men who have been arrested in Fulham on suspicion of rape.

The 26 year-old French international is being held by Scotland Yard's sex crime squad along with two other men.

They are being questioned over allegations that a 34 year-old woman was raped on May 6 by three men.

The allegation was passed to the Metropolitan Police by Kent Police two days later. The men are being held at a police station in west London

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed: "Three men, aged 26, 23 and 22, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape."

Remy joined Shepherd's Bush club QPR from Marseille in an £8million deal in January this year.

A spokesperson for QPR said the club was "aware of the allegations" but could not comment while the police investigation was continuing.
