Ronaldo accepts deal in tax fraud case in Spain

Cristiano Ronaldo arrives with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez to appear in court on a trial for tax fraud in Madrid, Spain

Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo accepted a fine and suspended jail term for tax fraud in Spain on Tuesday, signing a deal to settle a case which will cost him a total of 18.8 million euros.

The 33-year-old Juventus forward is unlikely to serve any time in jail as the sentence was expected to be within a two-year threshold that can be served on probation as a first offence under Spanish law.
