A court in Spain has found former Barcelona and Brazil footballer Dani Alves guilty of raping a woman in a night club. He was sentenced to four and a half years in prison, reports the BBC. 

The 40-year-old, who is one of the most decorated footballers in history, had denied sexually assaulting the woman in the early hours of December 31, 2022.

His lawyer requested his release from prison and said he would appeal against the decision.

The prosecution asked for a sentence of nine years in prison. According to Spanish media, the court took into account Alves' decision to pay the victim 150,000 euros in compensation, regardless of the outcome of the trial, when deciding on the length of his prison term.

His wife Joana Sanz, 31, said he appeared very drunk when he returned to their home in Barcelona on the night of the rape and crashed into furniture before collapsing on the bed.

But the court argued that his alcohol consumption had not affected his behaviour. Prosecutors said Alves and his friend bought champagne for three young women before luring one of them to a VIP area of ??the nightclub with a toilet she had no knowledge of.

They argued that it was at this point that he became violent, forcing the woman to have sex despite her repeated requests to leave./ CNA
