Paris St-Germain women’s midfielder Aminata Diallo has been released without charge by French police investigating an attack on her team-mate Kheira Hamraoui.

Diallo had been arrested on Wednesday.

Diallo, 26, was driving Hamraoui and another unnamed team-mate home after a team meal in Paris on 4 November when they were ambushed by two masked men.

A 34-year-old man who had also been arrested in connection with the attack has also been released by police.

When the attack took place, Diallo’s fellow France international Hamraoui was dragged from the car and had her legs beaten.

Hamraoui, 31, was treated in hospital and had stitches on her arms and legs.

In a statement released on Wednesday following Diallo’s arrest, PSG said they were working with police “to shed light on the facts”.

Diallo, who has been capped seven times by France, joined PSG in 2016 and has made more than 60 appearances for the club, but spent time on loan at Atletico Madrid last season.
