Danish Ryder Cup winning golfer Thorbjorn Olesen arrived at Isleworth Crown Court in London on Wednesday, to face charges of sexual assault, being drunk on an aircraft and common assault.

The golfer denies the charges and reportedly indicated he would plead not guilty when he appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court in late August. He reportedly did not enter a plea during the short hearing on Wednesday.

He is set to appear for another hearing due to be held on December 13, while a provisional trial date has been set for May 11.

Olesen is seen arriving and later departing Isleworth Crown Court alongside his lawyer and a woman thought to be his girlfriend.

The golfer, who was travelling first class on a British Airways flight to London in July after a golf tournament in the US, allegedly became drunk and abusive during the trip and was arrested as soon as he disembarked the flight. He was granted unconditional bail after his August 21 hearing at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court in the suburbs of London.
