Ahead of Juventus’s Champions League match with United, the 33-year-old soccer superstar faced the press for the first time since US police said they would re-investigate claims he raped a model in a Las Vegas hotel room.  

On Instagram, Ronaldo dismissed the allegations as ‘fake news’. His lawyer says the non-disclosure agreement was ‘by no means a confession of guilt’.  

The rape allegations first surfaced back in late September.
