New Delhi: On Friday, Cristiano Ronaldo become involved in a public row with Italy’s sports minister as they indirectly accused each other for lying over whether he broken health protocols after testing positive for COVID-19.

Vincenzo Spadafora, on Thursday, said the Juventus forward might have disobeyed the rules by flying back to Italy from national team duty in Portugal after testing positive earlier this week.

Ronaldo hit back on a social media post on Friday, and said he had done everything according to the rules.

“A gentlemen here in Italy, whose name I won’t mention, said I didn’t obey the protocol – that’s simply a lie”, posted Ronaldo from his Turin villa, where he is in quarantine and asymptomatic.

“I followed all the protocols and I will continue to follow them, my conscience is clear…. Everything I did was authorised”.

“They said I broke Italian law and this and that… it’s all lies, I did everything properly,” he added. “We did everything the right way — leaving the (Portugal) team, in the air ambulance, arriving in Turin… I did not have contact with anyone”.

“The fame and skill of certain players does not entitle them to be arrogant, disrespectful to the institutions and to lie”, Spadafora later said in an interview with the Italian news agency Ansa.

“On the contrary, the more well known you are, the more you should feel the responsibility of thinking before speaking and setting a good example”.

“I’m not going to continue with this matter forever”, he said.

“I’m not talking about it again and I repeat my wish that everyone who has tested positive recovers quickly”, he added further.
