Brazilian retired football player, Ronaldinho has been released from prison and placed under house arrest in Paraguay.


The 2005 Ballon d’Or winner, Ronaldinho alongside his brother had spent a month in jail after their arrest on 6th March accused of using a fake passport.

The pair had previously been denied bail but posted $800,000 each and must now stay in a four-star hotel in Asuncion while awaiting trial.

A judge in Paraguay on Tuesday ordered the release of Brazilian football great Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis into house arrest at a hotel in downtown Asuncion.

Judge Gustavo Amarilla told reporters that he had ordered the “continuation of house arrest in a hotel for Ronaldinho and his brother.”

In allowing the pair to leave prison, judge Gustavo Amarilla said the size of the bail paid was “significant” and would “guarantee they will not flee.”

Ronaldinho had initially visited Paraguay to promote a book and a campaign for underprivileged children. He said the passports had been given to him by sponsors of a charity working with disadvantaged children.

The 2002 World Cup winner played for clubs including Paris St-Germain, Barcelona and AC Milan before retiring in 205 after a spell at Brazilian side Fluminense.

Ronaldinho won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002 and was named Fifpro World Player in 2005 and 2006.
