Conor McGregor issues statement vigorously denying recent sexual assault allegations

Boxing champ Conor McGregor has reportedly been detained in France over an attempted sexual assault, however he denied the accusations.

A viral video past year appeared to show McGregor punching an older gentleman in a Dublin pub, and he was convicted of disorderly conduct in 2018 after attacking a bus full of UFC fighters in New York City.

A Corsica court official confirmed the arrest in a statement to AFP, TMZ Sports reported. "Conor Mcgregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct".

A rep for the Irish athlete said he denies the allegations.

The news was first broken by AFP Sport, who tweeted to say that McGregor had been arrested for "indecent exposure", but a follow-up tweet provided more context to the incident following a statement from the prosecutor's office.

No further details of the charges brought against him have been released.
