The German magazine that reported a rape allegation made against footballer Cristiano Ronaldo says it has "no reason" to doubt the authenticity of key documents used in its story, BBC reports.

Ronaldo, 33, denies assaulting Kathryn Mayorga at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

Lawyers representing the Juventus player said on Wednesday that documents had been "completely fabricated".

But Der Spiegel said: "We have hundreds of documents from different sources that substantiate our reporting."

It added in a statement: "We stand by our reporting. We have no reason to believe that those documents are not authentic.

"Furthermore, as always and before publishing every single article in Der Spiegel, we have meticulously fact-checked our information and had it legally reviewed.
