Former Brazil playmaker Ronaldinho said on Sunday he had contracted coronavirus but had no symptoms. The 40-year-old 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. “Hi friends, circle of relatives, fans, I took a Covid-19 test and the result used to be positive, I’m doing polite, I’m asymptomatic for now,” he said in a video posted on Instagram. In August, Ronaldinho returned to Brazil following more than five months in detention in Paraguay over a fake passport scandal.
The former Ballon d’Or winner and his brother had both been held for a month in prison and another four months under house arrest in a hotel in Asuncion.
Brazil has registered more than 156,000 deaths from coronavirus, in the back of only the USA on the subject of fatalities.
