Privacy row footballer Giggs hit by second affair claim

Super-injunction debate is rekindled as the News of the World publishes new allegations against foot

The News of the World splashed yesterday on claims of a second exta-marital affair involving privacy-row footballer Ryan Giggs.

And it reported that Natasha, the wife of his brother Rhodri, only went public with the claims of her affair after reading reports which Giggs failed to suppress of his relationship with former Miss Wales Imogen Thomas.

The News of the World emphasised the "hypocrisy" of the Manchester United star by noting that he had travelled to Sierra Leone in 2008 to front a UN safe-sex campaign at the time of his alleged affair. It also noted that his "Mr Clean" image has helped him secure lucrative sponsorship contracts.
