At the age of 37, 'the magician' Ronaldinho has officially retired from the game and plenty took to social media to pay tribute to one of Brazilian football's greatest players.
In an interview with Globoesports, Ronaldinho's agent and brother Roberto de Assis Moreira confirmed that the former Barcelona and PSG player will not play professionally again.

"He stopped. Ended. Let's do something pretty big, nice, after the Russian Cup, probably in August. We will do various events in Brazil, Europe and Asia. And, of course, we are combining a game with the Brazilian team.." he told Globoesports.
It looks like Ronaldinho will now play testimonial games in Brazil, Asia and Europe after the announcement was made.

For me, Ronaldinho was an absolute pleasure to watch. Nobody will be able to replicate what he did at the peak of his powers. The man was an unstoppable force that defenders feared and teammates loved.
He will be remembered as one of the greatest.
