A Brighton and Hove Albion footballer has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.
Sussex Police said the man was arrested along with another man in his 40s "after a woman reported being sexually assaulted at a venue in Brighton, in the early hours of Wednesday".
Both men, from Brighton, remain in police custody, the force added.
The football club said: "Brighton & Hove Albion are aware that one of its players is assisting police with the investigation of an alleged offence.
"The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment at this time."
The woman is receiving specialist support from officers, a police spokesperson said.
