The firestorm started when “international seductress” Valerie Fox posted photos on Twitter of a black eye that included the comment: “Proud of yourself? Hitting a woman? Vile creature.”

British newspaper The Sun later reported claims that Warne “hit a porn star in the face in a nightclub row”, news that was followed by media outlets worldwide.

But police have cleared Warne of any wrongdoing, with Warne saying he was “shocked” by the allegations.

FULL SHANE WARNE STATEMENT

I was shocked to read the media stories circulating earlier today concerning a false allegation of assault.

I have fully co-operated with the police, and they have now had the opportunity of seeing CCTV and speaking to witnesses.

The police have confirmed to me that I have cleared of the allegation and that no further action will be taken.

This is now the end of the matter.

Thanks for all the kind messages of support.
