Nike is “deeply concerned” by rape accusations against their athlete Cristiano Ronaldo.

The US sportswear behemoth – which has a contract with the football star for reported $1billion will “continue to closely monitor the situation.”

EA Sports, which also has a deal with the Juventus star and five-time World player of the year, expressed similar sentiments.

Ronaldo, 33, has been accused by ex-US model Kathryn Mayorga of raping her at a hotel in Las Vegas in 2009.

Kathryn was inspired to speak out by the #MeToo movement, her lawyer said.

“The MeToo movement and the women who have stood up and disclosed sexual assaults has given Kathryn a lot of courage,” Leslie Stovell said.
