England and Chelsea player Callum Hudson Odoi was arrested after a 4am row with a model he met online during the early hours of Sunday morning.
Metropolitan Police officers attended reports of an incident at the England international’s apartment after being called by the woman in question. An ambulance also attended the scene.

The 19-year-old Premier League footballer was arrested by officers and taken away from the scene and into police custody.
A police spokesman said: ‘Police and London Ambulance Service were called at 03:53hrs on Sunday 17 May to a report of an unwell woman.’
The Met confirmed the woman was taken to hospital and a man, who was arrested at the scene, remained in police custody.
Police returned to Hudson-Odoi’s property on Sunday to continue their investigations into the matter.
He also reportedly exchanged flirty messages online before meeting the woman and inviting her to his place, sending a vehicle to collect her.
His neighbours said that his acquaintance was ‘very glamorous’ before the property was ‘crawling with police’.
The report adds that the Chelsea star asked the woman to arrive at his property wearing lingerie.
Chelsea were contacted by various media outlets for a comment, though news of the arrest was learned of by players and staff during Sunday afternoon.
Hudson-Odoi had coronavirus in March, but is now set to return to group training by the end of the week provided his tests allow him to.
“I had the virus which has cleared now. I fully feel good, I feel fit, so I am feeling back to myself so it is all good,’ he said at the start of April.
“I had it [the illness] three weeks ago now I think, on a Monday when I felt a bit hot and I was thinking this is a bit unusual, why do I feel this hot. The next day I was feeling back to normal.
“I thought it was just a minor temperature thing, but obviously it wasn’t. I said to myself this wasn’t actually that bad, the symptoms, and I said to myself ‘I feel good, I feel better.
“Everyone has been asking me how I have been which has been class from them. They have been showing me support and saying ‘Cal, get well soon, I hope you are okay now’.
“It has been very warming and a good feeling to know you have got your team-mates behind you, backing you and making sure you are feeling well and encouraging you.”
Fans slammed and took the mick out of the England and Chelsea player for getting arrested after 4am row…
