MIAMI -

Prosecutors on Monday dropped charges against a 20-year-old college student who ran onto the pitch at Sun Life Stadium and hugged Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo.

Police arrested Ronald Gjoka on Aug. 7 after he ran onto the pitch during the match between Real Madrid and Chelsea. He was charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct.

"I feel very relieved," said Gjoka.

In September, the Portuguese star asked the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office to drop the charges.

"I understand your position and the importance of enforcing rules and law," Ronaldo wrote in a letter, according to Gjoka's attorney, Richard Hujber. "However, I respectfully request that you and your office reconsider this decision and dismiss the two criminal charges this young man faces."

Ronaldo received a standing ovation from the 67,000 fans in attendance. He scored two goals in Real Madrid's 3-1 win and was named man of the match.
