Cristiano Ronaldo fined $3.7 million in tax evasion case
Updated : July 27, 2018 10:18 PM IST
The 33-year-old is accused of evading 5.7 million euros in taxes. He has denied the allegations.
Ronaldo is unlikely to go to prison as Spanish law states a sentence of under two years for a first offence can be served on probation.
This amount is likely to be only part of the striker's fines over the case, which are expected to rise to around 19 million euros in total.
