King 'regrets' nightclub incident

Ledley King has played more than 250 times for Tottenham Hotspur

Footballer Ledley King said a "night out with friends went too far" after he was bailed following an allegation of assault outside a London nightclub. The Spurs captain was questioned on suspicion of an assaulting another man in Soho in the early hours of Sunday.

In a statement on the Spurs website, Mr King, 28, said he had apologised to club manager Harry Redknapp.

The player has been bailed by police until mid-July while inquiries continue into the incident.

Mr King's statement reads: "I sincerely regret that a night out with friends went too far. I have apologised to Harry and I fully appreciate that, as a professional footballer, I have a duty to behave in a responsible manner."

'Out of character'

He added: "I am assisting the police with their inquiries.

"Anyone who knows me, knows that much of what has been suggested is totally out of character.

He did the famous line 'Do you not know who i am - i am a rich guy i earn £80,000 a week - you are nothing in your £10 an hour job i could make you lose your job'
