Ronaldinho Pictured Drinking And Signing Shirts In Paraguayan Jail Following Arrest
Ronaldinho has been pictured drinking and signing football shirts a Paraguayan jail following his arrest.
The Brazilian legend was arrested for using a fake passport to enter Paraguay alongside brother and agent Roberto de Assis Moreira last week.
But it looks that the World Cup winner is adapting to life behind bars as images have surfaced showing him with other inmates in Agrupacion Especializada of the National Police of Paraguay.

Documents showing the 39-year-old had entered the country illegally were discovered in the Yacht and Paraguayan Club Hotel Resort in the city of Lambare, where he and his brother had been staying.
It seemed as though the pair would be let off with a slap on the wrist after co-operating and telling police they got the passports from businessman Wilmondes Sousa Lira.
But after a court in Paraguay refused bail and rejected appeals for house arrest, both Ronaldinho and his brother were put in prison.

His fake passport shows his correct name, birthplace, and birthdate, but it falsely suggests that he's a naturalized Paragauay citizen. [@Santula] pic.twitter.com/qOVEi7xPmi

Despite this, the former Barcelona man could find solace in football to pass the time in jail.
It normally takes place every six months meaning the competition was planned prior to Ronaldinho's arrival.
Typically there are 194 inmates involved who are then split into ten different teams.
You would feel slightly aggrieved if you managed to get to the final and came up against the former Ballon d'Or winner.
