Brazilian soccer star, Ronaldinho has tested positive for novel coronavirus, popularly known as COVID-19.

The former Barcelona forward shared a video to his Instagram story revealing his diagnosis. He said he is asymptomatic and is self-isolating in Belo Horizonte, having arrived in Brazil’s sixth-largest city on Saturday.

“I have been in [Belo Horizonte] since [Saturday], I came to participate in the event … I tested positive for COVID,” he said. “I am well, asymptomatic, but I will not attend. We will be together soon, big hug.”

It’s been quite a turbulent year for the the 40-year-old as it was reported earlier this year that he and his brother and manager, Roberto Assis, were jailed in Paraguay after entering the country with fake passports.

The two brothers were moved to house arrest in a Paraguayan hotel in April after serving 32 days in prison and released in late August after reaching a plea deal that included fines of $90,000 and $110,000, respectively.
