Ronaldinho arrested in Paraguay after fake passport claims

Former Barcelona and PSG star Ronaldinho has been arrested in Paraguay for allegedly using false documentation to enter the South American country.

He was detained in the Resort Yacht & Golf Club Paraguayo along with his brother Roberto on Wednesday night, according to the Ministry of Interior of Paraguay.

La Nacion reports that passports were found in the hotel bearing the names of Ronaldinho and Roberto with Paraguayan nationality.

Both the brothers remained in the hotel suite overnight, with Paraguayan authorities due to issue a statement on Thursday morning.

An official statement from the Paraguayan police had earlier revealed that Ronaldinho and his entourage had been invited to Paraguay by casino owner Nelson Belotti.

The former Brazil international was expected to hold several publicity events, with the media invited to witness his interaction with fans and dignitaries.
