Tuesday November 15th, 2016

MADRID (AP) — Atletico Madrid says it is helping police investigate a complaint made by a player from a second-division women's team who said someone tried to film her in the shower at the club's grounds on Sunday.

The unidentified player for Torrelodones went to police after noticing that someone tried to sneak a cell phone through a window while she took a shower after playing against Atletico at the team's Ciudad Deportiva complex just outside Madrid.

Atletico Madrid said Tuesday it is doing everything possible to cooperate with authorities investigating what would be a "very serious" occurrence.

The club said it also opened an internal investigation and noted that its employees made themselves available to help the player the moment she raised awareness of the occurrence.

Torrelodones released a statement supporting the player and condemning the incident, saying that it is prepared to take all necessary actions "to defend the dignity of our player" if any images become public.

It also demanded a public apology from Atletico Madrid.
