Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has cancelled a scheduled appearance in London this weekend, after the UK terror threat level was upgraded.
The upgrade comes in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack, which saw 22 people killed and over 59 others injured.
Ronaldo had been due to promote SIXPAD training gear at the InterContinental Hotel on Saturday.
“Following the upgrading of the UK’s terror threat, it is with regret that we have had to postpone Saturday’s public appearances with Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Safety is of paramount importance and given the high profile and public nature of this event we’ve taken the tough decision to postpone all activity until a later date,” SIXPAD said in a statement on Friday.
