Juventus shares close nearly 10 percent down amid Ronaldo rape accusations

Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have had his image removed from the EA Sports website.

EA Sports uses Ronaldo as the face of their huge Federation Internationale de Football Association gaming franchise - with this year's latest edition featuring the Juve ace on the cover.

The player has firmly denied the accusation. "In regard to tomorrow, he is ready to return to action".

Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo is set to lose about £1 billion financial loss accruing from sponsorship deals if he is sanctioned by some of his firms over assault allegations on Kathryn Mayorga.

Ronaldo is being sued by Kathryn Mayorga, who says he raped her in the penthouse suite of a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

Kohli, Jadeja slam tons to lead India's dominant display
Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo claimed four wickets in an otherwise toothless West Indies bowling attack. In the third over of the day, Virat Kohli entered the 3,000-club at home in terms of Test runs.


They're seeking to void the settlement, but have given interviews to German news magazine Der Spiegel in the meantime, leading to the Las Vegas police re-opening their investigation.

Video game developer EA Sports issued a similar statement about its Federation Internationale de Football Association cover star: "We are closely monitoring the situation, as we expect cover athletes and ambassadors to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with EA's values".

Juventus later posted a video on YouTube and Twitter shows, Ronaldo, working up a sweat as he trained with his teammates at the team's Continassa center in Turin for Saturday's league game against Udinese.

"The events allegedly dating back to nearly 10 years ago does not change this opinion, which is shared by anyone who has come into contact with this great champion".

Ronaldo's sponsors Nike and Electronic Arts have expressed serious concern about the accusations, however, and are monitoring the Las Vegas police investigation.

He reportedly used the meteorite as a doorstop and sent it to school with his children for show and tell . A U.S. farmer and his son saw a shooting star come crashing onto their property one night in the 1930s.


However, Nike and EA Sports have released less supportive messages.

Juventus have so far stood behind Ronaldo, but the Italian club's reaction to the issue has angered some fans. "Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in", the Juve man said on Twitter. An EA spokesperson said on Thursday it was also closely monitoring the situation.

"I see Ronaldo calm, he is ready to play".

A week after a Nevada woman filed a civil lawsuit accusing Ronaldo of rape in 2009, attempts by the five-time world player of the year and his Italian club to sway public opinion in his favor have not succeeded since the allegation surfaced.
