Didier Drogba under investigation by the UK Charity Commission

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba's charity backed by Princess Beatrice and David Beckham is under investigation after the Mail found less than 1 per cent of the cash it raised in the UK has gone to good causes.
Stars, royals and businessmen have donated more than £1.7 million to a foundation set up by the footballer.

Supporters, including Bono, Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley, were told the cash would build a hospital and help educate impoverished children in his West African homeland of Ivory Coast. But, shockingly, accounts show that just £14,115 went to good causes.

Last night, the UK Charity Commission launched an urgent probe after being handed a dossier of evidence by the Mail.
