London - Australian cricket legend Shane Warne said he was
"shocked" to be accused of assaulting an adult entertainment actress
in a London nightclub after he was cleared of all allegations.
Spin wizard Warne, 48, was questioned but subsequently
released without charge, police said.
"I was shocked to read the media stories circulating
earlier today concerning a false allegation of assault," said Warne in a
"I have fully co-operated with the police, and they
have now had the opportunity of seeing CCTV and speaking to witnesses.
"The police have confirmed to me that I have been
cleared of the allegation and that no further action will be taken. This is now
the end of the matter."
Actress and model Valerie Fox had posted pictures of an
apparent eye injury in the early hours of Saturday with the caption "Proud
of yourself? Hitting a woman? Vile creature."
