Chelsea's Hudson-Odoi says he'll face no more action over rape allegation
The England international, who was arrested on May 17 and released on bail, has now said the police will not be pursuing the matter
Callum Hudson-Odoi will not face any further action regarding a rape allegation, the Chelsea winger said on Saturday.
Hudson-Odoi was arrested on May 17 and released on bail.
But the England international has now said the police will not be pursuing the matter.
"At a time where there are bigger things happening in the world right now, you may also be aware of serious allegations that were made against me," Hudson-Odoi wrote on Twitter.
"I have stayed silent and assisted the police fully throughout their enquiries, as I knew the day would soon come when my name would be cleared.
"Following a full and thorough investigation, the police have now confirmed they will take no further action."
The 19-year-old added: "I would like to use this platform to thank everyone who has stood by my side and supported me during this difficult period."
Hudson-Odoi made a full recovery after becoming the first Premier League player to test positive for COVID-19 in March and has been taking part in Chelsea's preparations for the Premier League resumption next week.
