Cristiano Ronaldo accepts £17m fine and two-year suspended jail term for tax evasion


Cristiano Ronaldo has accepted a fine of £17m and a suspended two-year jail sentence following allegations of tax evasion in Spain.

The former Real Madrid player appeared in court in the Spanish capital this morning. He had already agreed a deal to pay the fine after pleading guilty last year to charges brought by Spanish state prosecutors and tax authorities.

Ronaldo arrived at court smiling and looking relaxed, even signing an autograph on his way in.

He spent about 45 minutes in court and signed the agreement to pay the huge fine.
