2005 Ballon d’Or winner, Ronaldinho has tested positive for coronavirus.

The former Barcelona and AC Milan star has endured a turbulent year spending over five months in detention in Paraguay over a fake passport scandal.

He announced on Sunday that he has contracted the novel coronavirus but had no symptoms.

“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.

Ronaldinho returned to Brazil in August after spending five months in detention in Paraguay.

He and his brother spent a month in jail and four months under house arrest in a hotel in Asunción.

Ronaldinho won numerous individual awards and trophies during a glittering career including the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
