Spanish Press Out Ryan Giggs as Player Who Had Affair with Imogen Thomas

Manchester United’s Ryan Giggs was named by the Spanish press and other outlets as the married soccer player who had a longstanding affair with model Imogen Thomas, a revelation that a judge in the United Kingdom had barred from publication.

Unfortunately for Giggs, that provision doesn’t extend to publications in other countries.

As Deadspin reported yesterday, “The (British) tabloids who’ve had this for weeks and months are royally pissed that they don’t get the scoop, but then this is the same industry that’s in trouble for hacking the voicemails of celebrities, including Wayne Rooney. So, pick your sides.”
