Robinho denies sexual assault charge [Football]

British Transfer record signing Robinho has denied claims he was involved in a sexual attack in a nightclub in Leeds.

The Manchester City and Brazil star, who recently returned from Brazil after celebrating his 25th birthday, was arrested and questioned by West Yorkshire Police as part of their ongoing enquiry.

Robinho's spokesman, Chris Nathaniel confirmed that Robinho met West Yorkshire Police "as a pre-arranged part of a criminal investigation" and added "He strenuously denies any allegation of wrongdoing or criminality, and is happy to cooperate with the police if required further."

City will host Newcastle in the Premier League tonight and a club source told one tabloid newspaper that Robinho will train as usual and is expected to play in tonight's game.

Robinho joined City in September 2008 for a record £32.5m from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
