The former Sunderland and Manchester City star was found guilty of sexual activity with the teenager following an incident in his Range Rover car in County Durham, north-east England, last year.

Johnson, 28, had admitted another charge of sexual activity with a child and grooming the girl. Judge Jonathan Rose, passing sentence, said the victim — who cannot be named for legal reasons — had been a Sunderland fan who would wait after matches to take pictures of her “favourite player”, Johnson, who had known her age.
