Ronaldinho Agrees To Pay R34m Fine

After running into trouble with authorities in Brazil, FC Barcelona legend Ronaldinho has reportedly agreed to settle a fine of about £1.19 million (R34 million) to clear his name.

According to the Daily Mirror, the former Selecao superstar caused issues in his home country when he and his brother illegally built a fishing platform and a structure to dock boats to.

The structure was reportedly built in a forbidden and environmentally protected area in Porto Alegre, which resulted in Brazilian authorities ordering the former playmaker to pay a massive fine.

After going many months without seeing to the instructions from the government, Ronaldinho had certain assets seized, with his passport also being confiscated.

New reports, however, suggest that Ronaldinho has now agreed to pay a fine of £1.19 million, which was lowered by the Public Ministry of Rio Grande du Sol.

The 39-year-old was recently named the Tourism Ambassador for Brazil last week, and will be able to get his passport back once the fine is settled.
