MADRID: A Spanish judge has summoned Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo to court to answer questions after he was accused of tax fraud by a state prosecutor.

The Portugal international will have to appear in the Pozuelo de Alarcon court No. 1 on July 31.

Last Tuesday, a Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Ronaldo of four counts of tax fraud totaling 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million).

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing.
