Former Premier League and England star Paul Gascoigne has tweeted some emotional statements in response to a report of a sexual assault charge against him.

The report states Gascoigne has been charged with assaulting a woman on board the train, for which he was arrested back in August.

The troubled former football star has been known for various off-the-field problems throughout his playing career and afterwards, despite also being fondly remembered for being one of the most talented players of his generation.

Gazza, as he is affectionately known, now faces very serious allegations here, though he seems to have strongly denied any wrongdoing with some emotional tweets from his official Twitter account.
