The lawyer representing Cristiano Ronaldo, has confirmed that authorities in Las Vegas have issued a warrant to collect DNA from the football star in the wake of allegations he raped a woman in 2009 in Las Vegas.

“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,” Ronaldo’s lawyer, Peter S Christiansen, said in a statement to the BBC. The Wall Street Journal reports that the warrant has been sent to courts in Italy, where Ronaldo plays for Juventus.
