WHAT HAPPENED?

A court in Spain has found the former Brazil and Barcelona star guilty of raping a woman in a nightclub in December 2002. The 40-year-old has been handed a jail sentence of four years and six months and ordered to pay the victim €150,000 (£128,500/$162,990). Alves was arrested in January 2023 and has been detained ever since after requests for bail were turned down. Prosecutors had been seeking a nine-year jail term for the former footballer. Along with his jail sentence, Alves has also been sentenced to a further five years of ‘supervised’ freedom upon his release from prison, per The Athletic. The Brazilian is also forbidden from going within one kilometre of his victim and cannot communicate with the woman for nine years.
