Alongside the assault charge of his girlfriend, Giggs was also charged for attacking the sister [to his girlfriend] Emma Greville.
However, this morning the Prosecutor, Peter Wright KC told Manchester crown court that they were not proceeding with the case anymore.

Giggs, up until his recent travails was the Manager of the Wales national team. He stepped down from his role in July last year and was replaced by his assistant Rob Page.
