Cristiano Ronaldo rape allegations: Footballer denies 'abominable' sexual assault claims

CCTV vision has emerged of Cristiano Ronaldo dancing with the woman accusing him of rape.

Kathryn Mayorga, 34, says the Portuguese forward sexually assaulted her in a penthouse suite in the USA state of Nevada and then dispatched a team of "fixers" to obstruct the criminal investigation.

Mayorga alleges in the lawsuit that she was pressured into signing a nondisclosure agreement to keep the alleged rape secret and is seeking no less than $200,000 in penalties and damages.

Lawyers representing Ms Mayorga will hold a media conference in Las Vegas late on Wednesday night to go into detail about the allegation.

Drohobyczer said Mayorga, now 34, became anxious her name would become public after a 2017 media report apparently referred to the June 2009 incident at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The 33-year-old had previously appeared to comment on the accusations in an Instagram live stream, decrying Ms Mayorga's claim as "fake news".

Ronaldo has now released a statement on the matter, after his legal team, per the BBC, said that they would sue Der Spiegel for "illegal" reporting.

It said the assault left her with "severe emotional and bodily injuries including but not limited to anal contusions, posttraumatic stress disorder and major depression".

She characterized Mayorga in 2009 as emotionally damaged, fearful, depressed and humiliated after the alleged attack and pressure from Ronaldo's representatives.

"The psychological trauma of the sexual assault, the fear of public humiliation and retaliation and the reiteration of those fears by law enforcement and medical providers left plaintiff terrified and unable to act or advocate for herself", the lawsuit claims.

Mayorga says she refused and wanted to leave - but Ronaldo "pulled [her] into a bedroom and onto a bed and attempted to engage in sexual intercourse". She later became a teacher but said she had to quit her job and has gone into hiding because of threats from Ronaldo's fans.

"You want to promote by my name", he said.

"I'm a happy man and all good".

Mayorga claims she tried to fight Ronaldo off - but he turned her onto her side and sodomized her while she screamed "no, no, no".

Ronaldo is one of the world's most famous athletes.

She claims she received $375,000 in exchange for her silence.

Police have reopened their investigation into the incident at Mayorga's request.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Drohobyczer said Mayorga gave permission.
