Report Juventus look to add sleeve sponsor to maximise Ronaldo influence

A lawyer for soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo said Thursday that Las Vegas police are seeking his client's DNA as part of their investigation into a decade-old rape allegation against him.

Cristiano Ronaldo will have to turn over a sample of his DNA following a warrant from Las Vegas police as they continue to investigate a rape accusation from 2009.

First partial solar eclipse of 2019 to be observed today
Unfortunately, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department, the solar eclipse will not be visible in Pakistan. Scientists say that the changes in the colour are due to refraction phenomenon and nothing related to the apocalypse.

Las Vegas police reopened the case past year after Mayorga claimed she had been raped by the footballer in a hotel suite after a night spent partying in 2009. Although the complaint was initially closed because Mayorga failed to offer up pertinent details of the incident or suspect, it was ultimately reopened in September 2018 when she filed a civil suit against Ronaldo. Recalling the interaction, Mayorga told Der Spiegel that Ronaldo had made a remark suggesting he was a good person minus that "1 percent".

Investigations are still going on the allegations that Ronaldo allegedly assaulted Kathryn Mayorga in America even though the Portuguese has denied what he was accused of. According to the report, the warrant has been sent to the court system in Italy, and once it's served, the Italian officials are expected to collect a sample of Ronaldo's DNA and send it back to Vegas police.

Padraig Harrington takes Ryder Cup captaincy for Europe with some trepidation
Harrington played in the biennial event in six consecutive contests, including winningm teams in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2010. The Irishman played in six Ryder Cups (four wins) and was vice captain at the last three (Gleneagles, Hazeltine and Paris).

Jasmine Lennard, an English model and actress, posted on her Twitter account that she has years worth of messages that would back up her claims that Ronaldo was abusive, and unrepentant about his behavior, towards her and other women. Lennard has since been in contact with Mayorga's team and will be looking to share her evidence with them. But Mayorga gave consent through her lawyers to make her name public.

Authorities in Las Vegas would then determine whether it matches genetic material found on Mayorga's dress.

Later that night, Mayorga went to the police to the report the assault and had a rape kit done.
