Harry Maguire avoids questions after appearing in court over Mykonos ‘fight’

Harry Maguire avoided answering questions following his court appearance in Greece after being detained for questioning over an alleged brawl.

The England footballer was arrested following an alleged fight on the island of Mykonos on Thursday night, along with two other Britons.

Police said there had been an altercation and an exchange of words with officers.

When asked by Sky’s Martha Kelner whether Maguire was still a free man, his lawyer replied: “Right now, yes.”
