Liverpool footballer Djibril Cisse has been cautioned by police after assaulting his pregnant wife.

The 24-year-old striker, who married Jude, 30, in June 2005, was arrested at their home in Frodsham, Cheshire, on Thursday evening.

He was taken to a police station and questioned before accepting a caution for common assault.

Cisse and his wife, who is originally from Anglesey, announced in October they were expecting their first child.

A Cheshire Constabulary spokesman said: "As a result of police inquiries, a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of section 39 assault.

"The man was interviewed at a police station and cautioned in respect of the assault."

Last June, French international Cisse accepted a caution for hitting a 15-year-old boy in London.

A Liverpool FC spokesman declined to comment.
