Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates:- According to a report from the Spanish newspaper AS, Spanish sports news agency Aa Sports has removed the image of Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo from the cover of FIFA 19 on its website.
"We have followed the reports on allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo, we watch the situation closely and expect athletes and our brand ambassadors to deal with themselves in a manner consistent with the values of the company," the newspaper added.
The company's decision follows a re-opening of the investigation into a case in which Katherine Mayorga accused Ronaldo of raping her in 2009.
In September, EA Sports launched FIFA's 19th edition, with Ronaldo on the cover, dressed as Juventus in July.
The game "FIFA 19" is issued several copies annually, according to the platform used.
