It wasn't immediately clear whether Cristiano's infatuated mother Dolores or his older brother Hugo, who both live in the seven-story house, were on the property at the time.

Meanwhile, his partner Georgina Rodriguez was at Paris Fashion Week.

Juventus striker Cristiano spent the first part of the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year with partner Georgina Rodriguez and children on the top two floors of the house after Serie A football was suspended.
