Noted soccer star subject Cristiano Ronaldo remains tight-lipped regarding recently rumors regarding his sexuality.

Claims were recently made by a French journalist that Ronaldo was flying to Morocco four times a week for “cuddles” with kickboxer Badr Hari.

It was only the latest rumor about Ronaldo to reach international headlines — and it’s one he’s chosen to tastefully sidestep.

After scoring an impressive four goals against Malmo, Ronaldo spoke to a reporter about feeling off his game.

The 30-year-old told Spanish TV station Antena 3: “I have been below my level. You have to take into account that I have had some personal problems. I would prefer to keep them to myself, but I am in a better place now.”

Ronaldo gently sidestepped rumors that he’s having difficulties with real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez and said he would not be leaving the Spanish giants.

He added: “I have two years left on my contract, and I will stay here. It’s only speculation. These rumors surface every year… but I am happy here.”
