Arsenal’s star midfielder Mesut Ozil is believed to have been questioned by police over allegations the car he was driving collided with a photographer in Highgate.

The incident is alleged to have taken place in Sheldon Avenue at around 7.15pm on Friday.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Police were called to reports of an alleged collision between a vehicle and a member of the public.

“The member of the public, a man in his 30s, sustained minor injuries.

“Officers have spoken to the driver of the vehicle.”

Enquiries continue and no arrests have been made.

German international Ozil, 25, joined Arsenal for a club-record fee of £42.5 million from Real Madrid last September.
