Real Madrid player, Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly appeared in court for tax charges.
He arrived in court on Monday morning to face charges of tax evasion filed by Spanish authorities, according to BBC reports.
The Real Madrid star evaded dozens of journalists and cameramen by entering the court in Madrid through the backdoor.
He had been expected to make a statement after the pre-trial hearing, but left without saying a word.
Prosecutors alleged he avoided paying millions in taxes since 2010, a charge the World Footballer of the Year denies.
