Press Gazette reports that a third England footballer has obtained an injunction banning the reporting of allegations about his private life. The gagging order was granted on Saturday by on-duty High Court judge Justice Kenneth Parker. This is the third England player in two weeks to be granted an order preventing the media from publishing claims about their personal lives.
