On 25 May 2008 and 3 May 2009 we reported that Michael Essien had cheated on his long term girlfriend Nadia Buari by having numerous affairs behind her back including one in which he fathered a child.
On 3 May we reported that as a result of his behaviour Ms Buari called their wedding off.
We now accept that these allegations are untrue.
We apologise to Mr Essien for any distress or embarassment caused.
