Cristiano Ronaldo: Photos with TV presenter are from several years ago
30 AUGUST 2012
Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has taken to Facebook and Twitter to deny rumours linking him to a Portuguese TV presenter.
Cristiano, whose team Real Madrid won the Spanish Supercup on Wednesday, was speaking about a photograph, published by the Poruguese press of him with the presenter, along with claims that the two were flirting.
The 27-year-old, who has been in a relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk (pictured) since 2010, posted: "Here we are again... today false news were published about my vacation based on a picture that was taken some years ago in the US."
He added: "Unfortunately some press don't investigate their sources and go ahead publishing lies joining people that are not in the photo and confusing dates."
It was a rare move for the sportsman, who doesn't usually discuss his personal life.
