Two Charlton Athletic footballers have been taken to court in handcuffs over an alleged sex assault on a British tourist at a hotel in Ibiza.

Reeco Hackett-Fairchild and Karlan Ahearne-Grant were both pictured being led by the arm by officers as they were led to the courthouse on the Spanish island.

The League One players, both aged 20, were arrested on Tuesday after the parents of a 19-year-old holidaymaker took her to police to lodge a formal complaint.

A third man, not believed to be a footballer, has also been arrested in connection with the alleged incident, but did not appear in court with the pair in Ibiza.

The teenager was allegedly attacked at a hotel in Cala de Bou, near the resort of San Antonio.
