Even as American woman Kathryn Mayorga's accusations of rape against Cristiano Ronaldo has created a storm, the Juventus star continues to insist that their sexual encounter back in 2009 was "completely consensual".

He added material "irresponsibly published" from "stolen documents" included large sections which were "altered and/or completely fabricated".

A lawsuit filed September 27 in Nevada state court seeks to void the non-disclosure agreement that Mayorga's attorneys say she signed while accepting $375,000 (£284,000) to keep quiet.

Last week Portugal left the player out of its national squad for two upcoming matches.

Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed he and his rape accuser returned to the club they met in after having sex.

Now his lawyer, Peter S. Christiansen, has issued a statement through Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes' website. "To absolve any doubt, Mr. Ronaldo has always maintained, as he does today, that what occurred in 2009 in Las Vegas was consensual in nature". Their 9,000-word interview, published two weeks ago, contained details of the documents.

In response to the question of whether Ms. C had ever raised her voice, screamed or called out, X answered according to the document: "She said no and stop several times". And further: "But she kept saying 'no.' 'Don't do it.' 'I'm not like the others.' I apologized afterwards".

Ronaldo has now chose to speak out, claiming he can "no longer stand silent" and is "confident that the truth will survive this frenzy" while the Las Vegas Police conduct their investigation.

Meanwhile, the German magazine, who first reported about the incident previous year based on documents that were available on "Football Leaks" website, have hit back at Ronaldo and his legal representative's claims. Telephone calls to Der Spiegel on Wednesday went to voicemail.

"Cristiano Ronaldo does not deny that he agreed to enter into an settlement, but the reasons that led him to do so are being distorted".

'Mr Ronaldo was advised to privately resolve the allegation against him in order to avoid the inevitable attempts that are now being made to destroy a reputation that has been built upon hard work, athleticism and honour'.

"While Cristiano Ronaldo is accustomed to being the subject of media attention that goes along with being famous, it is absolutely deplorable that any media outlet would support or advance such an elaborate and deliberate defamation campaign based on stolen, easily manipulated digital documents".

"Mr Ronaldo will leave future discussion of any and all legal matters to his attorneys here [in Las Vegas] and in Europe".

"Cristiano Ronaldo has mandated his lawyers in the United States and Europe to deal with all legal aspects and expresses full confidence that the truth will prevail, despite the corruption of counter-information, and in which the laws of Nevada will be enforced and respected".
