After the claim was published, on October 20, 2023, Ronaldo participated in matches on October 21 and 25, 2023, according to his official website and media reports.

According to an October 23, 2023, post on his Facebook and Instagram accounts, the sports star met the same day with the crown prince and prime minister of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman. Media covering the meeting confirmed it.

A Google Lens reverse image search (archived here) conducted by Lead Stories on October 30, 2023, found that the picture of the crashed car in the claim is from a case in April 2022 in Tapachula-Puerto Madero, Mexico, where police reports say a man described as Alejandro N was the driver of the car.
