Cristiano Ronaldo under police investigation for breaking Covid regulations for ski trip

Multiple outlets including Repubblica report that police investigations are underway after Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo crossed regional borders to go on a ski trip.

The Portuguese forward, who was not called up for yesterday’s 4-0 cup win over SPAL, had spent the last few days in Courmayeur, a ski resort in Italy’s Valle d’Aosta region.

However, under Italy’s current Covid-19 restrictions, Ronaldo would not have been able to travel across regional borders from the Piedmont region, which has been classed as “amber” by the Italian government with regards to Covid-19 risk.

As a result, local police authorities have begun investigations, after a video was posted online – now deleted – showing Ronaldo and girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez at Courmayeur. The pair had been at the ski resort for Rodriguez’s 27th birthday, and spent two days in a local hotel which had been officialy closed.
