Cristiano Ronaldo charged with €14.7m tax fraud

Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been charged with defrauding Spain's tax office of €14.7m 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.
