Ronaldo rocked by protest over rape claim

A banner supporting a woman who accused footballer Cristiano Ronaldo of a sex assault has been flown over Old Trafford during his return game for Manchester United.

The Level Up feminist group said they wanted to “remind crowds” of rape allegations against the superstar.

American Kathryn Mayorga said she was assaulted by him at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

But the 36-year-old has been in the clear since US prosecutors said he would not face charges.

A plane with the banner “Believe Kathryn Mayorga” was flown after the start of the game against Newcastle United.

The Portuguese player scored twice in his first Manchester United match in 12 years, with the Reds winning 4-1.

Ms Mayorga reportedly reached an out-of-court settlement with Ronaldo in 2010, involving a £288,000 ($375,000) payment for agreeing never to publicise the allegations.

This is as his lawyers maintain that the non-disclosure agreement was “by no means a confession of guilt”.
