Former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs has been charged with assault and controlling or coercive behaviour.

The Wales manager is accused of causing actual bodily harm to a woman in her 30s, and common assault of another in her 20s.

Both counts relate to an incident on the evening of Sunday 1 November 2020.

Police were called to reports of a disturbance in the Worsley area of Salford that night.

Giggs has also been charged with one count of coercive and controlling behaviour between December 2017 and November 2020.

The 47-year-old's been bailed.

He is due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court this Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Football Association of Wales says Giggs will not remain as manager for the Euro 2020 tournament.

In a statement, they say they have noted the decision of The Crown Prosecution Service to proceed with charging Ryan Giggs.

It says "In light of this decision, the FAW can confirm that Robert Page will assume the role of Cymru Men’s National Team manager for this summer’s EURO 2020 tournament and will be assisted by Albert Stuivenberg."
