Ronaldinho may have retired from professional football in January 2018 but it appears he still has a few tricks with the ball at his feet. The 39-year-old is currently serving time in a Paraguayan prison after being found guilty in the Ronaldinho passport case. The Ronaldinho prison inmates had the pleasure of playing alongside the World Cup winner.
Along with his brother Roberto, the Barcelona legend was found guilty after the Ronaldinho passport which was used to enter Paraguay was judged to be adulterated. Officers eventually found out the Ronaldinho passport was a fake and arrested the former Brazilian forward. Due to the Ronaldinho passport being a duplicate, there is a probability that footballing legend could face up to six months in a Paraguayan jail.
Despite serving jail time, the inmates at the prison had the luxury to play alongside one of the greatest footballers ever to grace the sport in a Futsal tournament. But to make the story weirder, the winner of the futsal tournament was to be awarded a 16kg pig. Either way, the Ronaldinho prison teammates prevailed with the Brazilian's five goals and six assists propelling his side to an 11-2 victory.

Fans are still curious to know whether the answer to the question 'Does Ronaldinho have coronavirus'?. The answer to that question remains uncertain but Ronaldinho was tested for Coronavirus earlier this week. There is still no confirmation on the results.
