Ronaldinho has confirmed that he has tested positive for COVID-19, with the Barcelona and Brazil legend self-isolating in Belo Horizonte.

The 40-year-old says he is not struggling with any symptoms, but has returned the positive test and will have to miss out on a planned event in Belo Horizonte as a result.

“I’ve been here in BH since yesterday, I came to participate in an event,” said the Brazilian on Sunday.

“I took the test and tested positive for COVID. I’m fine, asymptomatic, but we’ll have to leave the event for later.

“Soon we will be there together.”

The former AC Milan star spent 32 days in jail in Paraguay in March after he entered the country with a fake passport.

“Even after leaving prison he remained under house arrest in Asuncion for a further five months, only allowed to leave the country in August.

This came after a guilty plea, which saw him pay a hefty fine of £152,000.

Ronaldinho finished his football career in 2015 at Brazilian side Fluminense having starred for Paris Saint-Germain, Barca and AC Milan in Europe before returning to his home country.

He won two La Liga titles and the Champions League with Barcelona, Serie A with AC Milan and the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, winning 97 caps for his country.
