Ronaldo accepts 2 yrs in prison, €18.8m fine in tax case

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo during training

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reached a deal with the Spanish tax authorities to serve two years in prison and pay a €18.8m  ($21.8 million) fine in a tax evasion case, newspaper El Mundo reported on Friday.

Ronaldo is unlikely to serve any time in jail under the deal because Spanish law states that a sentence of under two years for a first offence can be served on probation.

The 33-year-old Portuguese footballer, who is accused of evading €14.7m in taxes, has denied all the allegations through his agents.
