Ronaldo flouts Covid-19 rules to take girlfriend on a birthday trip

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. 

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. 

It adds that the pair have not been fined, but the video showing them in the resort on social media was taken down immediately. 

Both Ronaldo and Rodriguez have now returned to Turin following their stay, but beiN Sports are reporting that the authorities are investigating Ronaldo after the trip to Courmayer. 

The fine Ronaldo faces is €400 (£354), which is as much as the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star Ronaldo makes in seven minutes as per his £26m-a-year (€30m) Juventus contract. 

Italian Covid rules state that: 'Travel across regions in Italy is banned until 15 February unless for reasons of work, health or absolute necessity.'
