The Manchester United legend has been cleared of assault charges against his ex-partner and her sister. Ryan Giggs.
The court decided to drop the charges against the 49-year-old, with his ex-girlfriend and her sister accusing him of physically assaulting both her and her sister during an argument that took place in November 2020.
During the trial, Giggs admitted he was unfaithful in the relationship, but when asked if he had ever physically assaulted a woman, he denied it, adding that he had never intended to control or coerce a woman in his life.
