The Brazil and FC Barcelona legend was arrested in Paraguay on 5 March after he and his brother were caught with fake passports.

An investigation has since been opened into the case, with reports alleging that the duo could be involved in a money laundering scheme.

However, on 7 April, Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis were granted bail and have since been under house arrest in a hotel.

The former Selecao talisman has now made his first public appearance to support Sheik Turki Al-Sheikh, the owner of LaLiga 2 side Almeria, who is taking part in a FIFA 20 match for charity on Friday.
