Cristiano Ronaldo charged with €14.7 million tax fraud
Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with defrauding Spain's tax office of 14.7 million euro (£12.9 million) in unpaid taxes.
Madrid's regional state prosecutor has accused Ronaldo of four accounts of tax fraud from 2011-14.
It says the Portuguese forward "took advantage of a business structure created in 2010 to hide from fiscal authorities income generated in Spain from image rights".
Ronaldo's agency had previously said he was up to date on his taxes.
