The well-known Italian volleyball player imagined he was dating a supermodel for 15 years, or so he thought.
The athlete invested 700,000 euros in his love over the years, although he never actually met her.
Roberto Cazzaniga, 42, has already passed his career’s pinnacle.
Prior to relocating to a lower level, he won gold for the Italian National Team in the Mediterranean Championships in 2009.
The athlete’s life, however, appeared to be going smoothly up until he connected with Maya, a Brazilian supermodel, online.
The virtual love tale intensified like a tornado as it progressed.
Roberto was mesmerized by the girl’s beauty and dove headfirst into this connection.
He sent her pricey gifts, including a car once for her birthday.
