Former Brazil striker Ronaldinho Gaucho on Sunday revealed that he has been tested positive for COVID-19. The 40-year-old said he is asymptomatic and is self-isolating in Belo Horizonte.
The Brazil player took to his Instagram handle to share the news. He wrote, “I arrived in BH (Belo Horizonte) yesterday, I took the COVID test, I tested positive, I am good, asymptomatic so far,”
According to reports, the ex-Barcelona and Paris St Germain player was in Belo Horizonte, where he played for local side Atletico Mineiro when he got his diagnosis.
The former AC Milan, Flamengo and Gremio player further said he would remain in a hotel until his condition improved.
The charismatic forward spent a month in a Paraguayan jail with his brother and business manager earlier this year, accused of entering country with a fake passport.
The pair was moved to house arrest in a Paraguayan hotel in April after serving 32 days in prison, with their sentences ending in August.
