Former Brazil footballer Ronaldinho is in a Paraguayan prison for attempting to enter the country with an adulterated passport much before most of the world was locked down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, neither being behind bars nor the coronavirus seems to have affected the Brazilian’s life in prison. Having celebrated his birthday with his brother on March 21, Ronaldinho was seen enjoying a game of foot-volleyball with him and other inmates in jail.
In the 90-second video, the Brazilian displays plenty of his skills and doesn’t lose a single point.
Since being in prison, Ronaldinho also took part in a prison futsal tournament where he scored five and assisted six goals in an 11-2 victory in the final. In reward, his team earned a 16kg pig.
It is also reported that the Brazilian has been attending a carpentry course in prison.
Ronaldinho’s defense lawyer Sérgio Queiroz believes he should be freed before his six-month stay because he is not a threat or flight risk.
