Ronaldo Under Investigation for Violating Travelling Restrictions

Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus Fc celebrate during the Serie A match between Juventus Fc and Bologna Fc. Juventus Fc wins 2-0 over Bologna Fc.

While his teammates where breezing past SPAL in the Coppa Italia’s quarter-finals on Wednesday night, Cristiano Ronaldo, who was given the day off, spent the day with his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez in Courmayeur, a renowned skiing destination. 

However, he may have broken the travelling restrictions imposed by the government due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the local authorities are looking into the matter, news agency Ansa reported.

In order to contain the spread of the disease, it is currently allowed to leave the region where one is located only for some limited exceptions, like for work or for an emergency, and not for recreational purposes. 

The player lives in Turin, in Piedmont, while Courmayeur is in the nearby Aosta Valley. However, it is permitted to reach a property that is owned directly by a family member, provided it is empty, and that is what the police forces will have to determine before eventually issuing a large fine against the Portuguese ace. The trip was well documented on social medias.

Corriere della Sera pointed out that it is the second time the Juventus striker has been investigated for violating the protocols. Back in October, after testing negative, he left the bubble that had been created after some cases within the club to reach his national team’s camp, which led to a heated exchange with the Italian sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora. Few days later, he contracted Coronavirus while in Portugal.
