Real Madrid star Ronaldo stands up for Miami-based fan in trouble with DA

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is coming to the rescue of a fan facing legal trouble in the US.

During Real Madrid's recent tour of America, ran onto the pitch and hugged him. The fan now stands accused of two offences, trespassing and disorderly conduct, which are considered quite serious in the US.

Ronaldo has decided to send a letter to the District Attorney in Miami in order to intercede for Ronald Gjoka, who could be deported back to his native Albania for his actions.

Marca reports Ronaldo wrote to the Miami DA:

"I understand your position and the importance of enforcing rules and law. However, I respectfully request that you and your office reconsider this decision and dismiss the two criminal charges this young man faces. It is my understanding that he now recognises his error and the importance of security. I do not want to see him face criminal penalties for his error."
