Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘under investigation’ after flouting coronavirus rules to take his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez on a trip to a luxury ski resort for her 27th birthday despite Italy’s ban on travel.
Ronaldo, 35, who was rested for Juve’s 4-0 Coppa Italia win against SPAL on Wednesday night, took his girlfriend to the resort of Courmayer, 93 miles from Turin, crossing the borders between Piedmont and Valle D’Aosta for a two-day trip.
According to reports, Ronaldo and Rodriguez stayed in a hotel that would have been officially closed. They were also recorded on a snowmobile.
The report claims that Ronaldo and Rodriguez spent two days in the snow in the Val Veny area, in the same resort that Rodriguez spent her birthday last year, but without Ronaldo on that occasion.
Both Ronaldo and Rodriguez have now returned to Turin following their stay, but are yet to be fined, according to sources.
The fine Ronaldo faces is €400 (£354), which is as much as the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star Ronaldo makes in seven minutes as per his £26m-a-year (€30m) Juventus contract.
Italian Covid rules state that: ‘Travel across regions in Italy is banned until 15 February unless for reasons of work, health or absolute necessity.’
