The pair were caught buying cocaine near the Champs Elysees avenue at around 03:00 (02:00 GMT) on Saturday morning, police sources said.

Ex All Black Ali Williams and Australia worldwide James O'Connor were reportedly arrested in Paris over the weekend for possession of cocaine.

Both are now playing from French clubs.

The Daily Telegraph are reporting no formal charges have yet been made against the pair, who were reported to be heavily intoxicated at the time.

The two suspected dealers were also arrested.

They were both taken into police custody.

A police source told Reuters that they were taken into custody and were expected to be held for up to 24 hours.

It is said Williams attempted to throw three bags of cocaine on the ground which were immediately found by investigators.

"It was chose to temporarily suspend Ali Williams".

Williams, who played 77 Tests from 2002 to 2012, is regarded as one of New Zealand's finest, most athletic locks.

O'Connor, 26, was considering a return to the Australian rugby fold ahead of the 2019 World Cup in Japan, but this incident will surely place a severe doubt on the ARU offering the controversial star a contract.

O'Connor earned 44 caps with the Wallabies between 2008 and 2013.
