Manchester City’s Kyle Walker is facing the prospect of a massive fine from his club after hosting a sex party during the lockdown.

The former Spurs defender was forced to apologise after it emerged he had held a party at his rented home in Cheshire with two escorts last week with the pair claiming he paid £2,200.

The problem here, of course, is not that walker paid for escorts – he’s an adult, as are the women involved and, as long as they weren’t trafficked, then their choice to work as they please is nobody’s business.

The issue is not the sex, it’s that we are not supposed to be gathering in more than groups of two outside of our immediate family group.

A City spokesman said: “Footballers are global role models and our staff and players have been working to support the incredible efforts of the NHS and other key workers in fighting the effects of Covid-19, in any way we can.

“Kyle’s actions in this matter have directly contravened these efforts. We are disappointed to hear the allegations, note Kyle’s swift statement and apology, and will be conducting an internal disciplinary procedure.”
