Accusations against Ronaldo have mainly come up via reports in Der Spiegel, relating to an alleged incident in 2009.
There have not been any further developments in the case for some so it remains to be seen if any more information will come to light, but Ronaldo has previously insisted he is innocent, with this tweet in October 2018 responding to the accusations made against him:
I firmly deny the accusations being issued against me. Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in. Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense.
