Rio De Janeiro: Former Brazilian football sensation Ronaldinho has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The 40-year-old Ronaldinho announced on Sunday that he has tested positive for Covid-19.
“Hi friends, family, fans, I took a Covid-19 test and the result was positive, I’m doing well, I’m asymptomatic for now,” he said in a video posted on Instagram.
The ex-Barcelona and AC Milan midfielder, who won the Champions League and World Cup in an illustrious career, will remain in isolation in a Belo Horizonte hotel.
In August, Ronaldinho returned to Brazil following more than five months in detention in Paraguay over a fake passport scandal. Ronaldinho, along with his brother Roberto Assis, was arrested in Paraguay in early March after using false passports to enter the country.
