According to press reports, the Portuguese football star, Cristiano Ronaldo, is under investigation in Italy due to suspicion of violating the restrictions to prevent the emerging corona virus “Covid 19”.
The “Daily Mail” newspaper reported that Ronaldo escorted his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, and went with her to a luxury ski resort to celebrate her 27th birthday.
The source added that Ronaldo and his girlfriend went to the “Courmayeur” resort, which is 93 miles from Turin, which means that he crossed from the Piedmont region towards Valle Dosta for a two-day vacation.
The newspaper “Corriere Dello Sport” wrote that the Juventus player and his girlfriend had stayed in a hotel that was supposed to be closed at the moment due to the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
At present, the Italian authorities prohibit travel between cities to slow the spread of the epidemic in the European country, one of the most affected by the virus in the world.
Ronaldo and Georgina appeared on a snowmobile, enjoying their time, despite the preventive decisions in force in the country.
Rodriguez had spent her previous birthday in the same resort, but Ronaldo was not at her side at the time and did not attend the event.
No fine was imposed on Ronaldo and his girlfriend yet, but the video they appeared inside the resort on social platforms was removed immediately.
The sources stated that Ronaldo was subject to investigation after his return to Turin. Still, the fine the player faces will not be exorbitant, but rather low compared to the “Don” income.
Ronaldo is likely to pay 400 euros due to the breach of restrictions, and this amount is what the player earns in just 7 minutes.
