Cristiano Ronaldo rumoured to be dating Spanish TV reporter Lucia Villalon
Madrid, Jan 20 (IANS) Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have quickly moved on following his break-up with Russian model Irina Shayk with rumours linking him to Spanish TV reporter Lucia Villalon.
The pair were pictured celebrating the Real Madrid superstar's third Ballon d'Or win on their way back from Zurich.
"There are 3! Golden ball congratulations! Zurich 12/01/15," Lucia captioned a photo of the pair on her Twitter account, holding the trophy with Ronaldo, reported the Daily Mail.
The 29-year-old received the award ahead of Argentine Lionel Messi and Germany's Manuel Neuer, and it was his second Ballon d’Or in a row.
Speculation about the Irina-Ronaldo breakup had started when the Victoria's Secret model failed to turn up in support of the Real Madrid forward at the Ballon d'Or awards. Irina's agent then confirmed over the weekend that the pair's five-year relationship was over.
"She has been very close to his family throughout their relationship. Any negative rumours about Irina's and Ronaldo's family are completely false and have not been a factor in the cause of the split", her statement read.
