On Thursday, Robinho's nine-year conviction for his involvement in the 2013 gang rape of a woman in a Milan nightclub was upheld by the Italian Court of Appeal, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport

The offence took place during the former Brazil star's spell with AC Milan in the Italian Serie A and saw Robinho convicted on charges of gang rape alongside five other men during a trial that was held in November 2017.
