A statement by TOPLINE Valle d’Aosta police have confirmed that they are investigating Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for allegedly breaking Italy’s Covid-19 travel restrictions by traveling between the regions of Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta with his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez.
Cristiano Ronaldo Breached restrictions
Rigid coronavirus restrictions in Italy prohibit residents from traveling between “orange zone” regions, including Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta.
Authorities were reportedly made aware of Ronaldo’s trip to the Alpine town of Courmayeur to celebrate his girlfriend’s 27th birthday after Rodriguez posted videos on Instagram showing the couple sitting on a snowmobile in Courmayeur on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If it is confirmed that Ronaldo made the trip, the most likely outcome is a fine, according to close sources and a confirmation to Reuters.
