Callum Hudson-Odoi arrested on suspicion of rape

Callum Hudson-Odoi has been arrested on suspicion of rape after allegedly breaching lockdown to be with a woman.

The 19-year-old Chelsea forward was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning, with the Metropolitan Police confirming they and the London Ambulance Service had been called to 'a report of an unwell woman'.

Hudson-Odoi reportedly had an argument with the woman at his home in south-west London. The unnamed woman was taken to hospital.

The England international has been released from custody and bailed. He must now return to a police station in mid-June as enquiries continue.

Chelsea declined to comment.

A police spokesman told The Sun this afternoon: "Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday, 17 May to a report of an unwell woman.

"When emergency services attended, a woman reported that she was raped. She was taken to hospital.

"A man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of rape. He was released from custody and bailed to return on a date in mid-June."

Hudson-Odoi had made 17 appearances for Chelsea under Frank Lampard in the Premier League this season before the coronavirus pandemic brought football in the UK to a standstill.

The 19-year-old was one of the first high-profile sports people to contract COVID-19, which led to the campaign being suspended. He later released a short video to social media confirming he had recovered from the virus.

In the video, he said: "Guys, as you may be aware, I've had the virus for the last couple of days which I've recovered from.

"I've followed the guidelines and will be self-isolating for a week. I hope to see everybody soon, and hopefully we can get back on the pitch soon. Take care."
