Prosecutors in Spain allege the Real Madrid player defrauded the government of about $16 million in taxes from 2011 to 2014. The prosecutor accused the Portuguese player of declaring just $12.8 million earned during the three-year period when Ronaldo's actual income was about $48 million.
  • Spieth leads by one despite pedestrian 69 at Travelers

    Sports

    Former world number one Spieth missed a couple of short putts in a round marred by two dropped shots at the par-five 13th where his drive sailed out-of-bounds, but he also had his high moments, including a 35-foot birdie at the third. The big thing was trying to get a birdie coming in, just to finish the day off of how I felt like I was playing all day, which was pretty solid. "I was out (since the Memorial) meditating", he said.

    NBA Draft 2017: What to Expect in the First Round

    Sports

    Under the 1995 Collective Bargaining Agreement, the National Basketball Association operates a rookie salary structure whereby first-year players sign four-year deals, with the first two years guaranteed and the final two optional. IT'S GOT TO BE THE SHOES: When Fultz walks on stage to shake hands with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver , he recommends you check out his feet. And if the Lakers do draft Ball, what does that mean for the player who is the team's current "point guard of the future", ...

    He was named second-team All-Big Ten after averaging 14.5 points in his senior season. Each team in the National Basketball Association receives two two-way contracts for players who are essentially their 16th and 17th on the roster. Congrats to @NIGEL_HAYES on signing with the @nyknicks . Presumably leading to his newly inked pact with the Knicks, Hayes notably worked out for the franchise prior to the 2017 NBA Draft.
  • Marin Cilic through to quarterfinals at Queen's

    Sports

    Cilic, the highest seed remaining in a decimated field, ran down American teenager Stefan Kozlov 6-0, 6-4, with the Croatian titleholder from 2012 striking in excess of 25 winners and never facing a break point. With Medvedev suffering a shoulder injury during the pre-match warm-up and needing lengthy treatment before he could start playing, it was no surprise Dimitrov won the first set after sprinting into a 5-0 lead.
  • Hamilton seems to like the idea of competing for Ferrari

    Sports

    But I've made it no secret I'm a huge fan of the team, a big fan of Ferrari and what they've achieved in the history of motorsport and the normal world in terms of the cars that they make. The circuit is "a succession of humdrum right-angled corners, a fiddly bit around a medieval castle and a long, long, long straight". "It's nearly like we have the hard and the extra-hard tyre here".
  • Lakers GM describes Lonzo Ball as a 'transcendent talent'

    Sports

    LaVar Ball rolled out his own shoe for his son during the draft , retailing for $495. "Right now, I'm hoping [Lonzo] leads us to a couple summer league victories, and we'll take it from there". Love him or hate him, you can not help but hate-watch the walking-talking BBB billboard of 24-7 marketing, hype and social media savvy in LaVar. And in terms of pressure, Lonzo echoed LaVar's belief - that basketball is for entertainment, with no room for worries.

"He just said guys that are my size and are versatile offensively and defensively, it's hard not to play those guys".
