The Emotional Moment Ronaldinho Discovers He's Being Released From Prison

The Emotional Moment Ronaldinho Discovers He's Being Released From Prison

Ronaldinho could barely hide his excitement on Tuesday after being told he would be released from jail.

The Brazilian legend has been in a Paraguayan jail alongside brother Roberto since the beginning of March after allegedly attempting to enter the country with a fake passport.

Both will serve the rest of their sentence under house arrest after paying £1.3 million in bail and Judge Gustavo Amarilla contacted the duo on Tuesday to reveal the news.

At the start of the conversation, he states: "Your lawyers say say you are not going to abscond and you are going to respect the conditions of the house arrest.

"I need to know whether you understand the terms of the bail agreement and personally accept it."

The former Ballon d'Or winner then immediately responds with "I accept," as does his brother.

Ronaldinho then busted out his infamous 'shaka sign' celebration while grinning from ear to ear.

Despite still being under house arrest, the hotel is definitely more luxurious than the prison they have left.

It's believed that the former Barcelona star will be enjoying the comfort of the very best suite in the four-star hotel, complete with a four-poster bed, five-star room service, 55 inch TV and whirlpool bath.

Some of the facilities are out of bounds due to the coronavirus outbreak but the 40-year-old will still have his own balcony with stunning views of the the Bay of Asuncion.

The hotel is reportedly offering discounts on rooms due to COVID-19 - with the presidential suite said to be discounted to £87-per-night.

Ronaldinho's stint in jail was eventful and it's fair to assume he didn't serve a typical sentence.

He celebrated his 40th birthday while behind bars and was allowed to celebrate with a BBQ as well as cake.
