Cristiano Ronaldo on Tuesday denied rape allegations leveled against him, saying his conscience was clear and that he would calmly await the results of any investigation.
According to reports in the German magazine, the American woman had filed a rape report with Las Vegas police shortly after the alleged incident.
The athlete has denied Mayorga's accusations and called what was written in Der Spiegel "fake news". "Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in", he wrote in a tweet.
"My clear conscious (sic) will thereby allow me to await with tranquillity the results of any and all investigations", he added on his Twitter feed @Cristiano, which has almost 75 million followers.
Ronaldo has now released a statement on the matter, after his legal team, per the BBC, said that they would sue Der Spiegel for "illegal" reporting. "A medical exam was conducted", authorities said in a statement.
Ronaldo, a five-time world footballer of the year, rejected the charges as "fake news" during a live chat on Instagram.
