Onetime Manchester City star, Robinho, has been sentenced to jail.
The footballer was sentenced to nine years in prison for being a part of a gang rape.
The ex-Brazil international, alongside five others, were convicted in Italy for the gang-rape of a 22-year-old Albanian woman, an event which happened in 2013.
The now 33-year-old Robinho was found guilty of the offence which was committed in a Milanese disco in 2013, while he was signed to AC Milan.
The Atletico Mineiro forward could still appeal the guilty verdict, which would put off any jail time until the appeal avenues are exhausted.
Robinho released a statement on his Instagram page stating that he had “already defended himself against the accusations, affirming that he did not participate in the episode” and that “all legal measures are being taken”.
