Cristiano Ronaldo’s hotel story which circulated massively has come into question as hotel officials claim that they had no information regarding it.
In the news report published by Marca on Sunday claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo has ordered to convert his hotels into hospitals to tackle the outbreak of the Coronavirus in Portugal.
The news spread like a wildfire and many media outlets also followed up on the stories. But RTL News claimed that they spoke to a spokesperson for the hotel in Lisbon after the news came in public.
“We are a hotel. We are not going to be a hospital. It is a day like everyone else, we are and will remain a hotel. We are being phoned by the press. I wish you a nice day” said the hotel spokesperson, as per RTL News.
On the other hand, even Ronaldo never mentioned it in his official statement he released on social media when Serie A along with other leagues became subject to a postponement.
Moreover, he also did not speak after the news came out, thus RTL News update comes out as a fact-check to alleged misinformation by the Spanish publication.
Ronaldo left Turin after the league got suspended and is currently residing in Portugal and wouldn’t return to Italy, until the virus slows down over there, as Italy is the 2nd most-affected nation after China amidst the pandemic.
Meanwhile, there are zero casualties in Portugal by coronavirus but 112 confirmed cases have been declared by the World Health Organization.
Ronaldo’s last match was against Inter Milan which was played behind the closed doors, but soon Rugani was also tested positive of the virus and the Italian defender was on the bench for the match.
Meanwhile, German Pezzella and Patrick Cutrone from Fiorentina have also been tested positive of the virus.
