Reports: Police Want Ronaldo DNA In Rape Case

According to reports, police have issued a warrant to obtain a DNA sample from Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo as part of their investigation into the rape case made against the superstar.

The Wall Street Journal claim that the warrant was recently sent to the court system in Italy, while Ronaldo’s lawyer Peter S. Christiansen said it was a “very standard request”.

Ronaldo is accused of raping American women Kathryn Mayorga in a Las Vegas hotel back in 2009, with the alleged victim coming out in a revealing interview with DerSpiegel in October.

Mayorga and her legal team also filed a report with Las Police, who have since reopened the case against Ronaldo.

The American already reported the case back in 2009, but did not want to reveal the name of the person, who allegedly raped her. In 2010, Mayorga reportedly agreed to an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo's representatives worth $375 000 (R5.2 million).

The player has continuously dismissed the allegations and his lawyer insisted the warrant for a DNA sample is normal procedure. 

"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", Christiansen told the BBC.
