  • Why Cristiano Ronaldo asked to be left out of latest Portugal squad

At the time, Santos suggested that the 33-year-old's absence was temporary and meant to help the star attacker adapt after his move from Real Madrid to Juventus.

On Wednesday, Ronaldo took to Twitter to "firmly deny" Mayorga's accusations, adding that he will not "feed the media spectacle".

Mayorga has been interviewed by law enforcement twice in recent months and will cooperate further with the Las Vegas police department's reopening of its investigation into her case. Rape is an abominable crime that goes against everything that I am and believe in.

Coach Luis Enrique has recalled Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke and Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata to the Spain squad for this month's internationals against Wales and England, although forward Diego Costa has been excluded.

On Wednesday, the 33-year-old denied an allegation that he raped Kathryn Mayorga in 2009 in Las Vegas but his omission comes somewhat as a surprise.

Larissa Drohobyczer, one of Mayorga's lawyers, told reporters that whistle-blowing website Football Leaks had provided documents that showed correspondence between Ronaldo and his team of fixers around the time of the incident, which they are considering making public.

A woman who has accused football star Cristiano Ronaldo of raping her gained courage from the #MeToo movement to file a complaint, her lawyer has said. Since then she had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Mayorga's attorney says his client was inspired by the #MeToo movement and is speaking out now in hopes of encouraging anyone who's suffered sexual assault in their past to come forward, reports CBS News correspondent Jamie Yuccas.

Mayorga was not at the conference and her lawyers claimed the alleged assault had caused her severe mental and emotional damage.
