Ronaldo to miss all Portugal’s autumn internationals: coach

Why Cristiano Ronaldo asked to be left out of latest Portugal squad

Police in Las Vegas have not identified Ronaldo as a subject of their reopened investigation, saying only that they are responding to a request for further investigation by Mayorga and her attorney after they filed the lawsuit.

Various reports of the Portuguese superstar involving in a rape incident has dominated the headlines over the past couple of weeks but on Wednesday, Ronaldo denied any wrongdoing and said that he will wait for the results of the investigations carried out regarding the matter.

The national captain will miss his country's UEFA Nations League game with Poland on October 11, before a friendly with Scotland three days later.

Coach Luis Enrique has recalled Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke and Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata to the Spain squad for this month's internationals against Wales and England, although forward Diego Costa has been excluded.

Mayorga, 34, alleges that Ronaldo, 33, raped her in a penthouse suite in 2009.

Mayorga filed the suit September 27 and detailed the assault as well as claims Ronaldo's "team" threatened her with public ridicule and influenced the police investigation.

"She wants justice, of course", he said.

A woman who has accused football star Cristiano Ronaldo of raping her gained courage from the #MeToo movement to file a complaint, her lawyer has said.

Photos show Mayorga and Ronaldo partying at a Las Vegas hotel that year.

Ronaldo offered her clothing and then followed her into a bathroom where she was going to change clothes, it said. "I am a happy man and all good", Ronaldo said.

Mayorga, who was not at the press conference, has left Las Vegas to escape the attention surrounding the case, Stovall said.

It claimed the agreement should be voided because she was "incompetent and lacked the mental capacity to participate in negotiations and settlement of her claims due to the injuries suffered during the initial sexual assault".
