Cristiano Ronaldo pays Spanish authorities �12.1m' to end tax dispute, �following claims Spain's high tax rate chased him away from Real Madrid

Superstar footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly paid the Spanish tax man £12.1million to end his tax dispute after having accepted a two-year suspended prison sentence this week.

According to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope, they reported this week that he has deposited the £12.1m and will also pay a further £4.7m in fines and costs. He has also accepted a two-year prison sentence which he will never have to serve because first offences for administrative crimes involving terms of two-years or less are not custodial in Spain.
