Barcelona football legend, Ronaldinho has opened up on his house arrest in Paraguay for allegedly using a fake passport to enter South American country.

The 40-year-old and his brother Roberto were arrested in March after police found passports bearing their names with Paraguayan nationality despite having their Brazilian passports confiscated in 2018.

They spent 32 days in prison before they were released from jail in April and then transferred to a luxury hotel where they kept them under house arrest.

Ronaldinho, who reportedly paid a £1.3million bond for himself and his brother to be released says he is ‘very calm’ and is doing ‘anything to pass time in the most pleasant way possible’.

Comparing his house arrest to those who have been isolating in their homes during lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic, he said: ‘People in their homes must imagine what it must be like not being able to do what you are used to.

‘I hope that soon everything will return to normal and we can return to our homes. Hopefully, everything will be as before.’
