Brazilian footballer Robinho has lost his final appeal against a conviction for taking part in the gang rape of a woman in Milan in 2013.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court in Rome upheld a previous ruling sentencing the 37-year-old to nine years in jail.

In 2017, Robinho and five other Brazilians were found guilty of assaulting a 22-year-old Albanian woman in a nightclub.

The sentence was previously upheld in December 2020 following an appeal.
