Cristiano Ronaldo under investigation after flouting Covid rules for girlfriend Georgina's birthday
- 28 January 2021
Cristiano Ronaldo is 'under investigation' after flouting coronavirus rules to take his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez on a trip to a luxury ski resort for her 27th birthday, APA reports citing Daily Mail.
Ronaldo, 35, who was rested for Juve's 4-0 Coppa Italia win against SPAL on Wednesday night, took his girlfriend to the resort of Courmayer, 93 miles from Turin, crossing the borders between Piedmont and Valle D'Aosta for a two-day trip.
According to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, they stayed in a hotel that would have been officially closed, while Ronaldo and Rodriguez were also recorded on a snowmobile - yet Italian Covid regulations state that travel between cities is banned.
The report claims that Ronaldo and Rodriguez spent two days in the snow in the Val Veny area, in the same resort that Rodriguez spent her birthday last year, but without Ronaldo on that occasion.
Italian Covid rules state that: 'Travel across regions in Italy is banned until 15 February unless for reasons of work, health or absolute necessity.'
