On Monday Las Vegas police reopened an investigation into Kathryn Mayorga’s claims that Ronaldo r*ped her in 2009.
Lawyers are probing three more claims against Cristiano Ronaldo after a model accused the star of r*ping her in a hotel room in 2009, it has emerged.
The attorney representing former model Kathryn Mayorga, who made the first accusation against Ronaldo, said he is probing the claims after one of the women phoned him.

Mr Stovall also revealed that he is sending material and documents allegedly incriminating Ronaldo to Robert Buckland, the Solicitor General, and to the Metropolitan Police.
Ronaldo also denies those claims, but a number of MPs and women’s rights activists want police to reopen that inquiry.
