The 26-year-old French international was being held by Scotland Yard's sex crime squad together with two other men.

Three men have been bailed until September, the Metropolitan Police said today.

A 34-year-old woman alleges that three men raped her on May 6 in west London.

Remy joined QPR in January for £8 million but was unable to help the team avoid relegation from the Premier League.

ITV News understands that a woman in her 30s visited Remy, 26, at his flat last week believing him to be alone. When she arrived his cousin and friend were also apparently present.

The woman was offered a drink and allegedly lost consciousness afterwards.

When she recovered consciousness some hours later, it is claimed she was naked and the three men were still present. The woman made a complaint to police and the men were arrested this morning.

The Metropolitan Police said: "Officers from Sapphire are investigating an allegation of rape which happened on 6 May in the west London area.

"The allegation was passed on to the MPS by Kent Police on 8 May after the 34-year-old female victim reported it to them on the previous day, 7 May. The victim alleges she was raped by three men.

"On the morning of Wednesday, 15 May three men, [A] aged 26; [B] aged 23; [C] 22 yrs, were arrested at an address in Fulham on suspicion of rape - they remain in custody at a west London police station".
