Vegas police want Ronaldo's DNA for alleged rape in 2009

Cristiano Ronaldo is denying claims made by Jasmine Lennard, a woman who, in a series of tweets, spoke out about interactions that allegedly occurred with the soccer star.

Las Vegas police reopened the case previous year after Mayorga claimed she had been raped by the footballer in a hotel suite after a night spent partying in 2009. He is expected to ship the sample back to Las Vegas.

A statement issued Thursday by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department confirmed that the warrant has been sent to authorities in Italy, where the five-time Ballon d'Or victor plays for league leaders Juventus.

Ronaldo's attorney, Peter S. Christiansen, reiterated the player's innocence in a statement obtained by BBC Sport correspondent Dan Roan on Thursday. Authorities are now asking for Ronaldo's DNA to see if it matches that found on Mayorga's dress from the 2009 night in question.

But Ronaldo, according to court papers filed by Mayorga, apologized to her after the alleged attack, telling her, "Sorry, I'm usually a gentleman".
