Former Tour de France victor Jan Ullrich has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a prostitute in Frankfurt, police say.

Officials say the woman suffered injuries in the attack and Ullrich could be charged with assault or attempted murder.

Ullrich, the only German cyclist to ever win the Tour de France, is in police custody following the arrest early Friday morning. "Mr Ullrich is still in custody".

German police confirmed that a 44-year-old hotel guest had been arrested following a "physical confrontation".

But he then got into a quarrel with the "escort lady" and "physically attacked and injured her", police said.

After spending the night with this woman, the only German victor of the Tour de France hit her and strangled her, authorities said.

Ullrich told Germany's Bild newspaper in an interview this week that he had marriage problems and was emotionally stressed after his wife had chose to separate.

"The separation from Sara and distance from my children, whom I have not seen since Easter and have barely spoken to, have had a great effect on me", said Ullrich. "I have done things as a result that I very much regret".

The incident took place just one week after Ullrich was detained by police in Mallorca, after forcibly entering his neighbour's house and threatening him.

He competed in cycling during the controversial period dominated by drugs cheat Lance Armstrong and finished second in the Tour de France five times.

The victor of the 1997 Tour de France arrived in Germany the day before from Spain, where he lives in Mallorca, to start therapy and try to treat his alcohol and drug addictions.

"Almost everyone took performance-enhancing substances then". He also told me that he had a prescription for cocaine'.
