Cristiano Ronaldo threatens to sue magazine over sexual assault accusations

Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is threatening to sue a German magazine after it reported he sexually assaulted a woman in 2009.

In the report, the woman says the attack happened in a Las Vegas hotel room. The report says Ronaldo paid her $375,000 to sign a non-disclosure agreement and stay silent.

Ronaldo has denied all of what his lawyers called "blatantly illegal" accusations.
