Ronaldinho has confirmed that he has tested positive for Covid-19, with the Barcelona and Brazil legend self-isolating in Belo Horizonte.
The 40-year-old says that he is not struggling with any symptoms, but has returned the positive test and will have to miss out on a planned event in Belo Horizonte as a result.
‘I’ve been here in BH since yesterday, I came to participate in an event,’ said the Brazilian on Sunday.
‘I took the test and tested positive for COVID. I’m fine, asymptomatic, but we’ll have to leave the event for later. Soon we will be there together. Big hug!’
