Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has had a tax fraud charge filed against him by prosecutors in Spain.
Ronaldo, who is away with Portugal preparing for next weekend’s FIFA Condeferations Cup in Russia, has been accused of using foreign accounts to avoid paying taxes, defrauding the state to the tune of £13m in unpaid taxes between 2011 and 2014.
Ronaldo, who is the world’s highest-paid sportsperson for the second consecutive year, according to Forbes’ annual list of the world’s wealthiest people, has severally denied having anything to hide.
He earned $93m (£72m) from salary, bonuses and endorsements last year, as per a report by the BBC.
