Sir Cliff Richard Quizzed By Detectives
Sir Cliff Richard has been interviewed by members of South Yorkshire Police, his spokesman said.
He voluntarily met officers on Saturday and was not arrested or charged.
The singer's Berkshire apartment was searched by police as part of the investigation into an alleged sexual assault at a religious event in 1985.
A spokesman for Sir Cliff said: "Today Sir Cliff Richard voluntarily met with and was interviewed by members of South Yorkshire Police.
"He was not arrested or charged. He co-operated fully with officers and answered the questions put to him.
"Other than restating that this allegation is completely false and that he will continue to co-operate fully with the police, it would not be appropriate for Sir Cliff to say anything further at this time."
South Yorkshire Police said a 73-year-old man had been spoken to in relation to an allegation of a sexual nature dating back to 1985.
Police said: "The man was interviewed under caution but was not arrested. He entered South Yorkshire Police premises by arrangement."
Sir Cliff, 73, was in Portugal when the search took place on August 14.
Fans have rallied round the veteran star since the allegation became public.
They are showing their support by buying copies of his 1992 number seven hit I Still Believe In You with the song headed for this weekend's Top 40.
It has emerged that Sir Cliff has pulled out of a visit to the US Open tennis championships and turned down the freedom of his adopted Portuguese home city of Albufeira.
He also cancelled an appearance at a charity event at Canterbury Cathedral next month so it was not "overshadowed by the false allegation".
