Cristiano Ronaldo could pay nearly £17m after settling a tax evasion case with Spanish tax authorities but is unlikely to serve a prison sentence.
The 33-year-old was given the sentence and a fine of almost €19 million (£17m) after pleading guilty to the four counts of tax fraud for which he was charged, between 2011 and 2014.
Spanish news agency EFE reports that an agreement was reached between the footballer, the prosecution office and representatives defending the interests of the government. He has denied the allegations.
Spain's Treasury and Prosecutor still consider that Ronaldo should be handed down a prison sentence because, even if he does not have to serve time, he would have a criminal record which would act as a deterrent toward re-offending at that time.

But alas, for those of us here in North America, this lunation won't be visible since it will occur in the late afternoon. The eclipse will be visible to people in Europe, Africa and the Middle East on July 27 between sunset and midnight.

He told reporters: "Improvement, development, using our football last season as a basis and make the next steps [would be a success]".
Instead the sentence is served under probation meaning Ronaldo won't be going to prison unless he re-offends during the two-year spell.
Sentences of up to two years are generally not implemented in Spain for first-time offenders in non-violent crimes.
Ronaldo's greatest rival Lionel Messi also faced similar charges in 2017 as he and his father failed to pay KSh 480 million (€4.1m) in image rights.
In 2014, Spanish authorities say he was late in declaring that year just €11.5 million of revenue earned in Spain for the period 2011-2014 when his earnings in his country of residence totalled €43 million.
