Cristiano Ronaldo’s emblem discovered on £3.2m cocaine haul
Shocking images have been released showing a £ 3.2 million shipment of cocaine stamped with the Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo’s CR7 logo.
There is no indication that the player was involved in the crime himself, but given his reluctance to use his images or branding, he will certainly not be pleased with the perceived association.

According to The Sun, 40 kg of the drug was found on the back of a truck in Coquelles, France, not far from the Channel Tunnel.
The loot was confiscated by the border troops and truck driver Vladimir Mrdak was arrested.
This is followed by a 50kg indoor gym back in New York in April, which apparently also sported the player’s logo.
