Bafetimbi Gomis denies rape accusations

Lyon’s French international striker Bafetimbi Gomis yesterday denied involvement in an alleged rape, and confirmed that he has not been arrested by police.

I formally deny the accusations that have been made against me and, contrary to what has been written, I absolutely did not spend the night in police custody. Thanks for all your support,” Gomis wrote on his Facebook page and also on Twitter.

Earlier, a police official in Lyon told AFP that two Lyon players were the subject of an investigation into the rape of a 38-year-old woman.
