Ronaldinho Finally Released From Paraguay Prison

Brazil football legend, Ronaldinho, has been released from a Paraguayan prison and placed under house arrest.

The 40-year-old was put in jail, for allegedly trying to enter the South American country with a fake passport.

However, Ronaldinho has now been allowed to leave prison, on the condition he stays within the boundaries of Hotel Palmaroga.

The former Barcelona and AC Milan midfielder, along with his brother, Roberto Assis, was released from prison after just 32 days of what was meant to be a six-month sentence.

It is reported that the lawyers for Ronaldinho and Assis have posted a $1.6 million (£1.3m) bail on behalf of their clients, after a previous application was denied because authorities deemed the pair to be a flight risk.

The 2005 Ballon d’Or winner had already seen his Brazilian and Spanish passports seized by Brazil’s authorities in 2019 because of separate legal issues.
