Spanish police transfer Dani Alves to detention center: Brazilian footballer suspected of rape (Reuters)
Dani Alves has been in prison in Barcelona for more than four months after being accused of raping a young woman in a nightclub, and according to Joana Sanz, the Spanish model with whom he is in the midst of a divorce, his life behind bars has been difficult, but has improved slightly recently.
Three weeks ago, it was claimed in Spain that the footballer "looks thinner and gaunter than ever", rarely leaves his cell and suffers repeated teasing in prison. "There are some people here who, every time in the dining room, shout all sorts of things at him, curse, 'You gay, you rapist!'"
"The first month there, he was just crying," Sanz confirmed in an interview with Vanitatis. He had no one to talk to, he was alone with his thoughts. He has since tempered. He practices, reads a lot and keeps himself busy."

: Who is really there for him?
On the prison visits, she said: "It's very complicated, I see him through the glass and we talk on the phone. We are not alone. These are transparent cells and on the sides there are other people who hear if you lift the audience a little. It's a difficult situation, so I haven't been able to talk to him until now about how it all affected us. I couldn't even insult him (laughed)."
Sanz also addressed her personal situation in light of the affair, admitting: "I'm bad, I'm sad and scared. I go to a psychologist who helps me, without her my brain would already say hello. It was a big event and they threw slime at me without having anything to do with the affair. On the contrary, I too am a victim in the story. This is my time to deal with everything, without the fear of being denounced."
