The sun is normally pretty good for its sport coverage.

For me, the issue is - if it's true, why haven't they named him?
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

No legal issues if they are sure of their "facts".

I think your thread title "Current England International Caught Doing Coke" is a bit mischievous. The rumour mill is claiming it was a past player if there was one.

What risk?

As I have said before, anyone can make up a story like this . An unnamed source, an unnamed player etc...

not an expert in defamation laws but why wouldn't current players threaten legal action. by not naming the player, all current players are slurred by the accusation. Could the FA also sue for damaging its reputation?

Doesn't there have to be damage that would cause a loss?

Who made the error?

In SA, the crime is defamation.

Good example of the British press is the couple arrested for the Gatwick drone incident, the bogan headlines from newspapers and then finding them totally exonerated. I'm sure there will be some legal action coming soon.

There is no evidence of a Gatwick drone.
The airport was for sale and the buyer needed a lower price.
