Sportswear company, Nike, has said it is “deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations” facing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has been accused of rape by Kathryn Mayorga, who claims the Juventus superstar assaulted her in Las Vegas in 2009.
The player has firmly denied the accusation.
In an email to The Associated Press, Nike said: “We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
The sportswear company has had a contract with Ronaldo, one of the wealthiest and most famous footballers in the world, since 2003.
Ronaldo, who has been left out of the Portugal squad for games against Poland and Scotland, has been backed by Juventus, who posted tweets on Thursday supporting their £105m signing.
