Premier League footballer Marlon King was charged on Thursday with attacking a woman in a nightclub, police said.
Metropolitan Police said King, 28, will appear before magistrates later this month.
The striker, who is on loan to Middlesbrough from Wigan, is alleged to have sexually assaulted and punched a 20-year old woman in a London nightclub in December.
