Las Vegas Police issues a warrant for a DNA sample from Cristiano Ronaldo

Ms. Mayorga filed a report with Las Vegas police accusing Ronaldo of sexually assaulting her in 2009. However, she

reportedly reached an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo involving a $375,000 (£288,000) payment for agreeing never to go public with the allegations in 2010.

German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel, which first published the story about the allegation in October, said Ronaldo denies assaulting Kathryn Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

“Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in Las Vegas in 2009 was consensual in nature, so it is not surprising that DNA would be present, nor that the police would make this very standard request as part of their investigation.”

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said it was “taking the same steps in this case as in any other sexual assault to facilitate the collection of DNA evidence” and as part of their investigation into the rape allegations made against the Juventus forward, they want a DNA sample from the player to prove if the allegations are true.

The LVMPD added: “We can confirm that an official request has been submitted to Italian authorities.

“Due to this being an ongoing investigation, we have no additional information or comment on this case at this time.”

Ronaldo’s lawyer has previously said his client does not deny entering an agreement but that “the reasons that led him to do so are at least to be distorted”.

He added: “This agreement is by no means a confession of guilt.”

The Portuguese international has previously dismissed the allegation as “fake news” and earlier in October issued a statement through his Twitter account in which he “firmly” denied the accusation.

However, his lawyers claim that the documents in the investigation are completely fabricated though the publication says it has no reason to doubt the authenticity of the key documents used in the story.
