Cristiano Ronaldo rape allegation: Accuser ‘got courage from #MeToo’

Kathryn Mayorga, the former teacher who has accused footballer Cristiano Ronaldo of raping her in 2009, was inspired to speak out by the #MeToo movement, her lawyer has said.

“The MeToo movement and the women who have stood up and disclosed sexual assaults has given Kathryn a lot of courage,” Leslie Stovall said.

Ronaldo has “firmly” denied assaulting Ms Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel.

He spoke out ahead of her lawyers giving a press conference on Wednesday.

The Juventus forward, 33, said he was calm over “any and all investigations” as he had a “clear” conscience over the allegation.
