Fiji Sun - - World News - Las Ve­gas: BBC

Football star Cris­tiano Ron­aldo will not face charges af­ter be­ing ac­cused of sex­ual as­sault, US prose­cu­tors say. Kathryn May­orga, 34, had al­leged that the Ju­ven­tus player raped her at a Las Ve­gas ho­tel in 2009. She re­port­edly reached an out-of-court set­tle­ment with the Por­tuguese star in 2010, but sought to re­open the case in 2018. He de­nied the al­le­ga­tions.

In a state­ment on Mon­day, Las Ve­gas prose­cu­tors said the claims could not “be proven be­yond rea­son­able doubt”.
