ATHENS: Two French tennis professionals were among five men charged Tuesday with the gang-rape of an American woman player during a tournament in Greece, a police source said.

The woman told police she had consensual sex with a Romanian youth, but was then gang-raped by three Frenchmen and a German.

The alleged rape took place during a tournament party at a hotel in the town of Marathon near Athens on October 3, police said.

The men, whose identities have not been released, were placed in pre-trial detention, the source said.

The five denied the charge, saying in a statement they were "innocent young people in jail, accused for something we did not do".

They described themselves as "a professional tennis coach, two professional tennis players, a dance instructor and a fitness coach."

No trial date has yet been set.
