    Agencies (Qasioun) - Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has appeared at a Spanish court where he was facing allegations he evaded millions in tax.

     

    Prosecutors accuse Ronaldo, reported to be the world's highest paid athlete, of evading €14.7m ($17.3m; £13.1m) in tax.

     

    He had been expected to make a statement after the pre-trial hearing, but left without saying a word.

     

    The Real Madrid star, 32, has previously denied the allegations, saying his "conscience is clear".

     

    Ronaldo is the latest in a string of footballers to be pursued by the Spanish tax authorities.
