US police seek Ronaldo's DNA sample in assault inquiry

Police in Las Vegas have sought the DNA sample of football star Cristiano Ronaldo as part of their investigation into sexual assault allegations made against him. 

According to reports, the authorities in Las Vegas had sent a warrant to the court system in Italy, where Ronaldo plays as a forward for Juventus. 

The 33-year-old has denied assaulting Kathryn Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009, and said on Twitter that his "conscience" is clear.
