Soccer player sues Murdoch’s UK newspaper over hacking scandal

Manchester United great Ryan Giggs became the latest celebrity to take legal action against the News of the World over allegedly hacking into his mobile phone, his lawyer announced on Wednesday.

The 37-year-old - who it was revealed last month by a British lawmaker was the married footballer who won a court injunction to keep details of an alleged affair secret - believes he is one of those whose phone was hacked into between 2005 and 2006.

The London Met Police are presently heading up an investigation into the claims.

In April, Giggs's team mate Wayne Rooney said he had been contacted by detectives involved in the investigation.
