Achraf Hakimi is being investigated over an alleged rape at his home in a suburb of Paris last Saturday. 

The woman reported the incident at a police station on Sunday but did not file charges.

Hakimi was part of the Morocco team that finished fourth in the World Cup in Qatar.

AFP said the public prosecutor’s office handling the case declined to comment but complained to AFP that “information already made public” in the media “undermined the necessary investigations to find out the truth.”
