A Children's Charity has issued a statement denying reports that Cristiano Ronaldo donated a massive €7million to the Nepal relief fund.

Reports in France last week suggested that the Real Madrid man made the generous donation but the Save The Children Charity have stated that did not happen.

According to the Guardian, Save The Children issued the following statement: “The global ambassador for Save the Children, Cristiano Ronaldo, has used his voice and his global visibility to raise awareness of the problems faced by the most vulnerable children around the world, including those affected by the earthquake in Nepal.

“The latest information on the donation of Cristiano Ronaldo to the emergency response of Save the Children in Nepal is false. After the second earthquake, which has brought further devastation to the country, the NGO wants to thank Cristiano Ronaldo and other influential people for their support in publicising the situation facing children and families in Nepal.”
