Chelsea and Australia women's soccer superstar Sam Kerr has been charged with a "racially aggravated offense" after a dispute involving a London police officer, the Metropolitan Police said Tuesday.

The 30-year-old striker, one of the highest profile and best-paid players in the women's game, was charged following the incident in January 2023, police said in a statement.

The alleged dispute was sparked when a police officer responded to a "complaint involving a taxi fare," police added.
