Date Posted,May 25, 2017

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s scheduled appearance in London this weekend has been postponed after the UK terror threat level was upgraded in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack.

“Safety is of paramount importance and given the high profile and public nature of this event we’ve taken the tough decision to postpone all activity until a later date.”
