The family of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has broken their silence since allegations of rape levelled against the footballer by Kathryn Mayorga came out.
Kathryn Mayorga, a former model turned teacher, accused the sportsman of raping her in a Vegas hotel suite back in 2009.
Ronaldo’s mother Maria Dolores and sister Katia Aveiro both posted pictures of Cristiano in a Superman cape with matching messages on Facebook and Instagram, vowing to seek ‘justice’.
Dolores wrote: ‘I want to see who has the courage to put this photo on their profile for a week and make a chain for him..for Portugal, for him, for us and for the union of our people, for justice. He deserves it.’
The picture of Ronaldo carried two hashtags in Portuguese. One translates as ‘Ronaldo, we are with you to the end’ and the other as ‘’Justice for CR7.’
She also alleged the former Manchester United forward, then dispatched a team of “fixers” to obstruct the criminal investigation and trick her into keeping quiet for 375,000 dollars (£268,000).
