Video: Man Utd captain Harry Maguire’s case explained at trial after arrest in Greece

Harry Maguire’s trial is underway in Greece after the Manchester United captain was arrested after an altercation with local police on Thursday evening. 

Maguire’s lawyer Alexis Anagnostakis has said that two Albanian men injected his sister Daisy with a substance on the night of his arrest.

The defence say that Maguire, his brother Joe and friend Chris Sharman planned to go to the nearest hospital after Daisy fainted following the injection.

Instead, a driver took the trio to a police station where Maguire’s subsequent arrest occurred.

The defence also say Maguire was assaulted by officers with one telling him “your career is over”.

The prosecution have stated an entirely different version of events, stating that Maguire attempted to bribe the police by giving them money for his freedom.

Maguire is not present at the trial after being granted the option to return to the UK following his arrest.

Sky News’ Martha Kelner has been covering both the prosecution and defence’s arguments:
