Australian cricket legend and consistently questionable bloke Shane Warne has been accused of hitting a British glamour model in the face during an argument at a London nightclub.
The model, a 30-year-old woman named Valerie Fox, posted several updates on her situation via Twitter, including a bruise on her face.
Absolutely traumatised by tonight's events, being a victim of assault is horrible and I thank the @metpoliceuk for their help & support.— Valerie Fox (@ValerieFoxxx) September 23, 2017
While she hasn’t named Warne publicly, tabloid newspaper The Sun alleges that witnesses saw him and Fox in an argument at a club called Loulou’s in Mayfair, a central suburb of London.
According to The Sun, those witnesses saw Fox fall to the floor holding her face.

Fox says that she’s lodged a criminal report with the police, who will be investigating the assault.
Scotland Yard released a statement confirming they were investigating an incident:
Detectives are investigating an allegation of assault alleged to have taken place in a nightclub on Hertford Street in Westminster in the early hours of Saturday. There have been no arrests and inquiries continue.
