Coronavirus: Former Premier League footballer arrested for breaking curfew

Ex-footballer Nolberto Solano has been arrested in his native Peru for breaking a coronavirus curfew to attend a party.

Peru President Martin Vizcarra has banned people from leaving their houses in many cities from 20:00 until 05:00.

More than 18,000 people have been arrested for ignoring social distancing measures in the South American country.

Mr Solano, 45, who played more than 300 games for Newcastle United, said he was just chatting to friends at a neighbour’s house and it was not a party. He was later released.
