CRISTIANO Ronaldo will not have to give evidence against a former model who accuses him of rape, lawyers have agreed.

Kathryn Mayorga’s lawsuit will be decided by an arbitrator rather than a jury, so the star, 35, won’t have to go to court.

Ms Mayorga, 36, claims the Juventus and Portugal player attacked her in a Las Vegas hotel in 2009.

He denies the allegation.

She accepted £290,000 from him and signed a non-disclosure deal after deciding not to prosecute.

The former teacher now says she was mentally unfit at the time and seeks £165,000 damages in her new civil claim.

Her bid to use papers “obtained by a hacker” said to incriminate the ex-Man United star has been dismissed.

Ronaldo, who could claim costs against her, says a cyber criminal fabricated them.
