Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Madrid, where his trial for alleged tax fraud will begin on Monday.
Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is set to appear in court in Madrid today over accusations of evading millions of euros in taxes.
However, the 32-year-old - who won the Champions League, Liga title and Ballon d'Or last year - denies the allegation and says his "conscience is clear".
The Real Madrid star faces no formal charge at this stage and is appearing in court as an 'investigated person'.
Prosecutors accuse Ronaldo of taking "advantage of a company structure created in 2010 to hide income generated in Spain from his image rights from tax authorities".
Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing.

The victim was among a group of passengers who had their flight, EZY2122 from Nice to Luton , delayed for about 13 hours. The airline also apologised to passengers for the delay, which it chalked down to a technical issue with the plane.
The prosecutor also said that Ronaldo did not declare income of 28.4 million euros (£25.4 million) made from the cession of image rights from 2015-20 to another company located in Spain.
Messi's Barcelona and Argentina teammate Mascherano accepted a one-year suspended sentence in January 2016 for tax fraud after he was found guilty of failing to pay ¬1.5 million in taxes for 2011 and 2012.
The probes into Ronaldo and Mourinho's financial arrangements are the most recent high-profile tax cases involving football's top names in Spain.
Neymar has also been ordered to stand trial for tax fraud.
Barcelona forward Lionel Messi was sentenced in May to 21 months in jail, though local media reported a month later that he is unlikely to serve time behind bars.
