During the interview, the footballer also expressed the embarrassment he feels about a rape allegation made against him. American model Kathryn Mayorga had put the allegations on him in 2009. The model claimed that he raped her in a Las Vegas hotel. Ronaldo denies all the allegations that she put against him.
