The Spanish Treasury had previously accused the former Real Madrid star of not paying tax on his earnings received for his image rights between 2011 and 2014, which came to £12.8m.

According to Spanish publication Cadena Cope, the 32-year-old already paid the treasury £12.1m of the 16.8m last week.

Ronaldo has also reportedly accepted the prison sentence, although he won't serve any actual time as a sentence in Spain two years or under can be served on probation.

The same report claims that the remaining £4.7m is yet to be paid, but that is made up of fines and administrative costs.
