Las Vegas police have issued a warrant for soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo’s DNA over an alleged rape case in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009.

The Wall Street Journal on Thursday quoted a law enforcement official familiar with the case, as saying that police are seeking to test the Portuguese soccer star’s DNA against DNA found on the dress of a woman who accused him in September of raping her ten years ago in 2009.
