Óscar Arias denies the allegations

Former Costa Rican President Óscar Arias has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in 2014.

Mr Arias, who is 78 and has won the Nobel Peace Prize, categorically denied the allegations and said he had always treated women with respect.

His accuser, a peace activist, has filed a formal complaint with police.

She told local media and the New York Times that he had groped her after they met at his home to discuss his support for a campaign against nuclear weapons.
