Cristiano agreed to pay about $21.6 million (€19 million) in fines.

However, the charges date back to when Ronaldo was with his former club Real Madrid. A state prosecutor presented the charges in 2017, According to the AP (via NBC News), accusing Ronaldo of four counts of tax fraud between 2011 to 2014.

He agreed in 2018, to plead guilty to tax fraud after initially denying accusations of hiding incomes made from his image rights.

The star athlete allegedly spent 45 minutes in the courtroom. He was dressed in all black and made no comments in regards to the court appearance or even his plea.
