Shane Warne Releases A Statement

Shane Warne has been cleared by police over claims he assaulted a woman at a London nightclub.

The famed spin bowler said he was shocked to read reports in the London press on Sunday concerning Valerie Fox and an alleged altercation at a nightclub.

"I have fully cooperated with police and they have now had the opportunity of seeing CCTV and speaking to witnesses," Warne, 48, said in a post on Twitter on Monday.

"The police have confirmed to me that I have been cleared of the allegation and that no further action will be taken.

"This is now the end of the matter."

The woman had posted a picture of herself on social media of what appeared to be a black eye.

Scotland Yard confirmed police had looked in to an allegation of assault at a nightclub in Westminster in the early of hours of Saturday.

"A 48-year-old man attended a central London police station where he was interviewed under caution in connection with the incident," a spokesman said.

"He has since been released with no further action to be taken."
