Mason Greenwood has been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of the rape and assault of a woman.

The Manchester United forward was taken into custody for questioning on Sunday after a woman alleged that she had been assaulted in a number of pictures, a video and an audio recording posted to Instagram.

As per Mike Keegan from the Daily Mail, Greater Manchester Police have now confirmed the 20-year-old has now been released on bail pending further investigation.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Manchester United have already confirmed Greenwood will not play or train for the club, saying: "Manchester United reiterates its strong condemnation of violence of any kind.
