Authorities in Las Vegas have issued a warrant to obtain DNA from Cristiano Ronaldo after claims he raped a woman.
The Las Vegas Police Department want to see if it matches a sample found on the dress of Kathryn Mayorga, who has made the accusations against the Portuguese striker.
The dress forms part of box of evidence that includes a sexual assault kit that tested the former model for signs of rape at the time of the alleged attack in June 2009.
The Wall Street Journal claims that the police have issued the warrant to the Italian courts, where the striker currently plays for Juventus.
Sources close to the former Manchester United star, who has vehemently denied her claims, say he is willing to cooperate.
Ronaldo is accused of raping the woman in a Las Vegas hotel room before telling her “I’m usually a gentleman”, court documents claim.
Cristiano Ronaldo strongly denies the accusations
American Ms Mayorga says the Portuguese star attacked her in 2009, claims the £100m Juventus forward strongly denies.
The Portuguese star, who was in Sin City just weeks after leaving Old Trafford for Real Madrid, has vehemently denied the claims labelling them “fake news”.
In an instagram post last year Ronaldo appeared to address the incident, saying: “No, no, no, no, no. What they said today? Fake, fake news.”
The alleged rape took place in June 2009 in a hotel room in Las Vegas.
The dress – a key piece of evidence – has been retained by investigators.
Las Vegas police reopened the case after Ms Mayorga filed a lawsuit against the former Real Madrid player. The striker has always denied the allegations.
His lawyer has released a statement saying: “Mr Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature, so it is not surprising DNA would be present nor that the police would make this very standard request part of their investigation.”
