Cheshire Police stated in a statement that Benjamin Mendy, 27, has been charged with four charges of rape and one act of sexual assault.


"The allegations are claimed to have occurred between October 2020 and August 2021 and include three complainants above the age of 16."

The public was advised not to report, comment, or post anything online that might prejudice a fair trial.

Mendy was capped by France young teams at the under-16, under-17, under-18, under-19, and under-21 levels before making his senior debut in 2017. He was a member of France's World Cup-winning side in 2018.
