Best Cleared Of Sex Allegations

LATEST: British soccer legend GEORGE BEST has been cleared of allegations he indecently assaulted a young girl and assaulted a woman.

The former Manchester United and Northern Ireland football player was questioned by Surrey, England police last month (09JUN05) and released on bail.

A girl, aged under 13, alleged she had been indecently assaulted by the 59-year-old. Best was also accused of a separate incident - the assault of 34-year-old VICKI POPE outside the home of his former girlfriend GINA DEVIVO in Ewell, Surrey.

A police spokeswoman said today (05JUL05), "Following a full investigation by Surrey Police, and after consultation with the Crown Prosecution Service, there will be no further action taken."

Only three days before his arrest, Best was attacked by his ex-lover ROS HOLLIDGE, who hit the soccer star with a vase when he returned to her home drunk. Hollidge was cautioned by police.
