Johnson: World 'turned upside down' by arrest

23 February 2016, 20:31

Bradford - English soccer player Adam Johnson has denied engaging in any further sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl other than kissing her in his car.

Testifying at his trial, Johnson told a court he was surprised the girl told police that more sexual activity had taken place and that "I felt like someone else was telling her to say these things."

Johnson said Tuesday that his world "got turned upside down" when he was arrested by police.

Johnson has been fired by his Premier League club, Sunderland.
