Iñaki Urdangarín confirmed last week his relationship with another woman when asked by journalists about the photographs in which he appears hand in hand with a young woman on a beach in Bidart.
The former handball player did so by stating that they would manage this situation as best as possible. “It is a difficulty that we will manage with the utmost calm and period, as we have always done,” he said, according to Europa Press.
These images came to light when Urdangarín and the Infanta Cristina have been married for 24 years, which continued despite the fact that the former handball player was convicted of corruption in the Nóos case.
The scandal broke out in November 2011 and it was not until February 17, 2017 that the Palma Provincial Court sentenced him, sentencing him to 6 years and 3 months in prison. A resolution later reviewed by the Supreme Court, which reduced it to 5 years and 10 months.
Until then, the Infanta Cristina and Iñaki Urdangarín lived in Switzerland, but when the sentence was final, the former handball player had to enter the women’s prison in Brieva (Ávila). However, the former athlete has enjoyed the third degree for a year and since June 23, 2021, due to his good behavior, he no longer has to spend the night in the Zabala prison (Álava), to which he had been previously transferred. because of family roots, since his mother lives there.
Urdangarín’s entry into prison did not mean the transfer of the residence of the Infanta to Spain, who decided to remain in Geneva, where the couple had established their residence in 2013. His surroundings commented at that time that the well-being of their children had prevailed.
But Iñaki Urdangarín’s release from prison did not change the family situation either, the Infanta has since continued to live in Geneva, despite the fact that her husband was already enjoying parole in Vitoria and works in a law firm.
