The 46-year-old was arrested on suspicion of assault and bodily harm over an alleged incident at his home on Sunday night.

He has since denied all allegations and is co-operating with police after being released on bail.

"Mr Giggs denies all allegations of assault made against him. He is co-operating with the police and will continue to assist them with their ongoing investigations," a statement on behalf of Giggs read, as quoted by Wales Online.

Greater Manchester Police earlier released a statement to The Sun, saying: "Police were called at 10.05pm on Sunday to reports of a disturbance. A woman in her 30s sustained minor injuries but did not require any treatment.

"A 46-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 47 assault and section 39 common assault."

Giggs was supposed to announce his Wales squad for the upcoming international break on Tuesday, but the Football Association of Wales (FAW) has since postponed the press conference.

"The FAW is aware of an alleged incident involving the men's national team manager Ryan Giggs," a statement from the FAW read.

"The FAW will be making no further comment at this current time."
