Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk
Cristiano Ronaldo wishes Irina Shayk "the greatest happiness."
The 29-year-old soccer player insists there are no hard feelings between him and the Sports Illustrated model following their recent split after five years of dating.
The Portuguese star said: "After dating for five years, my relationship with Irina Shayk has come to an end. We believed it would be best for both of us to take this step now."
He also suggested he is still on good terms with the brunette beauty.
In the written statement, he added: "I wish Irina the greatest happiness."
The duo split over the Christmas period and the Real Madrid player is rumoured to have already moved on with Spanish TV presenter Lucia Villalon.
Last week, it was claimed that Ronaldo dumped Irina, 29, because she refused to attend a 60th birthday party he was organising for his mother Dolores.
However, a spokesperson for the model-and-actress previously refuted the claims, saying: "She has been very close to his family throughout their relationship.
"Any negative rumours about Irina's and Ronaldo's family are completely false and have not been a factor in the cause of the split. Irina has no comments at the moment."
