German newspaper Bild appears to have controversially raised the issue of Cristiano Ronaldo's sexuality, questioning his orientation after publishing several pictures of him while on holiday in Ibiza.
Ronaldo is currently enjoying a short break with friends after playing in last week's Champions League final before soon joining up with his Portugal team-mates ahead of Euro 2016.
The three-time Ballon d'Or winner had been carrying an injury before helping Real Madrid to an unprecedented 11th European title and the exertions of a long and hard season showed in the game in Milan where he seemed to be operating below full power.
But he probably wasn't banking on a tabloid newspaper trying to pry into his personal life.
Whilst Ronaldo relaxed on a yacht, Bild pointed out that all of his companions were male, additionally stating that the majority of them were in possession of toned gym bodies.
"On the boat there is absolute woman doldrums - rather, the boys sizzle among themselves," the newspaper commented, appearing to insinuate about the 31-year-old's sexual preference.
"Women? Wrong! Captain Ronaldo and his guys are self-sufficient," a caption to a picture also read.
This is not the first time that Ronaldo, who raises his young son alone, has had people question his sexuality, all of which seems wholly unnecessary. The gossip media have previously rumoured he is in a homosexual relationship with close friend and kick boxer Badr Hari.
