The official who spoke with the Journal said police sent the warrant to court officials in Italy, where Ronaldo plays for the Italian club Juventus in addition to Portugal's national team.

Ms Meltzer added that Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department "is taking the same steps in this case as in any other sexual assault to facilitate the collection of DNA evidence".

Juventus striker, Cristiano Ronaldo is set to submit DNA as part of the police investigation into his Las Vegas rape case.

Investigations are still going on the allegations that Ronaldo allegedly assaulted Kathryn Mayorga in America even though the Portuguese has denied what he was accused of. Recalling the interaction, Mayorga told Der Spiegel that Ronaldo had made a remark suggesting he was a good person minus that "1 percent".

Mayorga is in the middle of a lawsuit against Ronaldo, according to TMZ, claiming that he suied her in a hotel room in Las Vegas, Nevad back in 2009.

Once the warrant has made its way through the Italian court system, officials will then serve it and, if Ronaldo complies, collect the samples and send them back to United States officials.

Lennard, who was the first celebrity to be evicted in the 2012 series of Celebrity Big Brother, tweeted after watching Surviving R Kelly: 'On that note and after much thought I am reaching out to Kathryn Mayorga and her legal team to offer my assistance in her rape allegation against @Cristiano please contact me.

Authorities in Las Vegas would then determine whether it matches genetic material found on Mayorga's dress. Mayorga filed a police report at the time, and claims that she later accepted a $375,000 payment in exchange for dropping the charge. Mayorga shared her story with German publication Der Spiegel, which sparked a strong denial from Ronaldo's camp and a threat to sue the publication, calling rape an "abominable crime".
