TAX EVASION: CHRISTIANO RONALDO APPEARS IN COURT

Cristiano Ronaldo has appeared at a Spanish court, on Monday, where he is facing allegations he evaded millions in taxes. Ronaldo spent an hour-and-a-half giving evidence to judges at a court in the Madrid suburb of Pozuelo de Alarcón dodging the media camped outside by arriving and leaving via an underground garage.

Prosecutors are accusing Ronaldo, 32, of evading €14.7m ($17.3m; £13.1m) in tax. The Real Madrid star had previously denied the allegations saying his “conscience is clear”.
He had been expected to make a statement after the pre-trial hearing, but left without saying a word.

The Portuguese skipper is the latest in a string of footballers to be pursued by the Spanish tax authorities.
