Former Barcelona player and club legend Ronaldinho has confirmed that he tested positive for COVID-19.
The World Cup winner, through a story he posted on Instagram, broke the news, saying that he tested positive for Coronavirus, while being asymptomatic, and self-isolating in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
“I’ve been here in Belo Horizonte since yesterday, I came to participate in an event.” Ronaldinho says in the video, before adding, “I took the test and tested positive for COVID. I am fine, asymptomatic, but we will have to postpone the event for later.”
The Brazilian legend ends the video on a positive note, by saying, “Soon we will be there together. Big hug!”
The 40-year-old joined Barcelona in 2003, and is often said to be one of the best players to play for the club. He is also called for being a revolutionary, helping Barcelona win their first Champions League in the new era, and their second ever after a 14 year gap. We wish Ronaldinho a speedy recovery!
