Cristiano Ronaldo’s family especially his Mum and sister have spoken up for the first time on social media over the sexual allegation claims made by former American model.
Ronaldo’s mum, Dolores and sister Katia both posted pictures of the Juventus striker in a superman cape costume.
The duo added matching captions that read: “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.”

Quero ver quem tem coragem de pôr esta foto no perfil por uma semana e fazer uma corrente por ele…POR PORTUGAL ,POR ELE ,PELOS NOSSOS ,PELA UNIÃO DO POVO ….PELA JUSTIÇA 🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹🇵🇹 ELE MERECE. #ronaldoestamoscontigoatéaofim #justiçacr7 #nãoporqueémeuirmãmasporqueelemereceonossoapoio #deusnuncafalha #deusnocomando🙏
The animated picture of Ronaldo carried two hashtags in Portuguese. One translates as “#Ronaldo, we are with you to the end” and the other #Justicacr7 as “#Justice for CR7.”
Katia’s message got nearly 15,000 likes in the first hour after she posted it, with one insisting: “I support Cristiano. This seems like a trap because there are things that don’t make sense.”
Another, a Portuguese national called Renan Soares, said: “United we will conquer.”
A fan posted a photo on her Facebook page in response to Cristiano’s mum’s message, showing her kissing his Portuguese football shirt with the number seven written on it.
The 33-year-old is facing a new US police investigation over Kathryn Mayorga’s claims he forcefully had his way with her at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009 after inviting her to his penthouse suit.
But the Juventus Striker described Mayorga’s accusation as “fake news” before adding in a tweet: “Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.
“Keen as I may be to clear my name, I refuse to feed the media spectacle created by people seeking to promote themselves at my expense.”
The original police investigation into the claims was abandoned and Ms Mayorga alleges she reached a £287,000 settlement with Ronaldo in 2010 in exchange for her silence.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo has been called “a great professional” as he prepares to return for Juventus in their Serie A match at Udinese on Saturday.
Portugal forward Ronaldo, 33, has “firmly” denied raping Kathryn Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.
