In a bizarre twist of events, Brazilian football legend and 2005 Ballon dâOr Winner Ronaldinho has found himself quite far from his World Cup days - getting the chance to play for a prison futsal tournament in Paraguay. 

Ronaldinho and his brother have been arrested for entering Paraguay with fake passports.

The footballer, renowned for his technical skills and iconic career at F.C. Barcelona and A.C. Milan, was arrested this Thursday along with his brother and agent Roberto de Assis Moreira for trying to enter the country with a fake passport. Both Ronaldinho and his brother are sharing a cell in Agrupación Especializada of the National Police of Paraguay. 

And It just so happens that days after one of the world's greatest footballers entered the facility, the prison are staging a futsal tournament. Extra reports that the competition normally takes place every six months and so was planned prior to Ronaldinho's arrival. Typically, there are 194 inmates involved and split into ten different teams.

Initially, authorities told the media that the star would be allowed to spectate the tournament - until this post surfaced from ABC TV journalist Ivan Leguizamon.

Al ser negada la libertad a Ronaldinho, es inminente su participación en el torneo de presos de la Agrupación Especializada. De hecho, anoche ya se comprometió con sus compañeros carceleros. En qué equipo va a jugar y qué condiciones le impusieron. Hoy a las 18:00, por @ABCTVpy.

Loosely translated, the tweet reads: "When Ronaldinho is denied freedom, his participation in the tournament of prisoners of the Specialized Group is imminent. In fact, last night he already got engaged with his fellow jailers. In which team will you play and what conditions were imposed." 

Naturally, several football fans, especially across Ronaldinhoâs home country of Brazil, exploded onto social media, where they debated on the playerâs release and whether he would take it easy on his rival inmates.

He didnât, demolishing the opponent team with 5 goals and 6 assists.

Fans reacted with immense support, cheering on the inmates and expressing their disbelief:

Some even contributed wild theories suggesting that Ronaldinho deliberately landed in prison to experience an inmateâs life.

This guy is on holiday.

While thousands of fans are incredibly jealous of the inmates who got to play alongside the legend, he still remains in jail. In Paraguay, the maximum time for the investigation period is six months but Ronaldinho and his brother will be hopeful the process is completed a lot quicker.
