The British Police has dropped a rape case concerning Chelsea teenage sensation, Callum Hudson Odoi.
Odoi was arrested on May 17 and was released on bail, with the case still pending full clearance.
He posted on his Twitter handle,
“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. 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 Metropolitan Police also released a statement in respect to the issue.
“A man arrested on Sunday, 17 May following an allegation of rape has been released with no further action. The incident is therefore no longer being investigated by police.”
Chelsea however, have not said anything concerning the issue. Hudson-Odoi, who has three England caps and in September signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea, was the first Premier League player to test positive for coronavirus.
He has fully recovered and returned to training with his Chelsea team-mates, who resume their season with a tricky away trip to Aston Villa on Sunday, 21 June.
