    Two Charlton Athletic footballers accused of a sex attack on a British woman in Ibiza have appeared in court.

    Recco Hackett-Fairchild and Karlan Ahearne-Grant, both aged 20, were arrested on Tuesday after the 19-year-old woman reported a sexual assault in the village of San Jose.

    The Foreign Office said it was aware of the allegations and was in contact with the family and Spanish authorities.

    Charlton said it would not be commenting due to the investigation.

    According to police in Ibiza, the woman and a friend were on holiday on the Spanish island.

    They had gone to the town of San Antonio on 11 June and in the afternoon they met several other footballers.
