Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent transfer to Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nasr club has sparked controversy surrounding his living arrangements in the country with his partner Georgina. Under Saudi law, cohabitation between an unmarried couple is a punishable offense, but there is a possibility of exemption for foreigners.
This has led to speculation about the couple’s relationship, with some claiming they are having sex. Some analysts believe the move is a part of the Crown Prince’s Vision 2030 to improve the country’s image, while others see it as a form of ‘sportswashing’. It remains unclear how Saudi authorities will handle the situation with Ronaldo and Georgina’s living arrangements, but the government has relaxed laws for foreigners in the past.
