Save the Children denied reports that Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo made a 7 million euro donation towards the Nepal earthquake fund.

"The global ambassador for Save the Children, Cristiano Ronaldo, has used his voice to raise awareness of the problems facing the most vulnerable children in the world. But the latest information regarding an alleged donation from Ronaldo to the emergency response of Save the Children in Nepal is false," a statement on the charity's website said.

"After the second earthquake, which has brought further devastation to the country, the non-governmental organization wants to thank Cristiano Ronaldo and other influential people for their support in publicising the situation children and families in Nepal are facing," it added.

Around 8,000 people died on April 25 when a first earthquake hit the country. A second earthquake on May 12 killed 16 more people.
