PSG have confirmed star Aminata Diallo is in police custody as they condemned the shocking attack on her team-mate Kheira Hamraoui.

L’Equippe broke the stunning news this morning that 31-year-old French female star Hamraoui was dragged out of her car by two masked men before they punched and kicked her.
