Football star Cristiano Ronaldo has been accused of defrauding the authorities of millions of euros in tax by Spanish prosecutors.
The prosecutors says that they have filed a lawsuit against the Portuguese player.

He is accused of evading tax of 14.7m euros (£13m; $16m) from 2011 to 2014.
In a statement, Cristiano Ronaldo’s representative denied that there had ever been concealment, or the slightest intention to conceal.

“It is clear that the football player did not try to evade taxes,” Ronaldo’s Gestifute management company said.

Ronaldo brushed off the accussations, saying he was not worried about tax investigations as he had nothing to hide.
In December, leaked documents suggested that Ronaldo had avoided tax on income allegedly held in offshore accounts – allegations he also denied.

When asked about that investigation, he told a journalist from Radio Television Portuguesa (RTP) “Quien no debe no teme”, which roughly translates as “He who has nothing to hide has no fear.”
