Italy's sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora has confirmed investigations against star striker Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus Turin. The Portuguese is said to have violated Corona requirements.
"Cristiano disregarded the conditions. The public prosecutor's office has taken on the matter," said Spadafora at Rai Tre. "The virus showed us that no one is exempt from it. It's a nasty thing, but it broke protocol and that's a fact."Ronaldo resists: "Didn't break the rules"
