Ronaldo and his wife to separate

Real Madrid's Brazilian star Ronaldo and his wife Milene Domingues are in the process of divorcing. Ronaldo's spokesman Rodrigo Paiva said, "The relationship between the two has deteriorated for some time."

Paiva said that although the couple continued to live under the same roof and shared the same room they "no longer had a husband-wife relationship."

A Rio tabloid carried a photograph of Real Madrid player David Aganzo, who is currently on loan to second division Levante, and claimed that he was having a relationship with Domingues. Paiva denied the report. He said in the event of a separation the couple's three-year-old son Ronald, would remain with his mother.
