Cristiano Ronaldo violates coronavirus travel restrictions: reports


Portugal and Juventus star striker Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly violated coronavirus travels with a trip to a mountain resort to celebrate his girlfriend’s birthday.

The talisman allegedly travelled to Courmayeur, 150 kilometres north-west of
the Serie A club’s Turin headquarters, for his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez’
birthday.

When contacted by AFP, Juve declined to comment.

Rodriguez, who turned 27 on Wednesday, apparently posted a video of the
couple on a snowmobile on Instagram.

She later removed it, but it was picked up by several Italian news sites.

The Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper said Ronaldo and Rodriguez spent Tuesday
night in a hotel and took a ride in the snow the next morning, before returning
to Turin.

Under current Italian coronavirus rules, the couple should not have left the
town of Turin. They each risk a fine of 400 euros ($485).

The 35-year-old footballer has been embroiled in coronavirus-related
controversy before.

He was criticised in October for travelling to Portugal while Juventus were in isolation after two virus cases. Ronaldo then tested positive himself, and returned to Italy to spend a couple of weeks in isolation at home.

At the time, Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora accused the star of “violating” coronavirus restrictions.
