Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho has lost his mother after she contracted the novel Coronavirus.
Ronaldo de Assis Moreira (born 21 March 1980), commonly known as Ronaldinho Gaúcho or simply Ronaldinho, is a Brazilian former professional footballer and current ambassador for Barcelona. He played mostly as an attacking midfielder, but was also deployed as a winger. Often considered one of the best players of his generation and regarded by many as one of the greatest of all time, Ronaldinho won two FIFA World Player of the Year awards and a Ballon d'Or. A global icon of the sport, he was renowned for his technical skills, creativity and dribbling ability, as well as his use of tricks, feints, overhead kicks, no-look passes and accuracy from free-kicks.
Dona Miguelina is said to have passed away in the early hours of Sunday, February 21, 2021, at the age of 71.
She reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 at the end of 2020 and had been hospitalised in their home city of Porto Alegre.
Ronaldinho was very close to his late mother and occasionally had her watch his matches when he was an active footballer.
The news comes as a huge blow for the ex-Barcelona and AC Milan star, who was released from prison in Paraguay just six months ago.
The former Brazil international and his brother Roberto Assis were arrested last year for using fake passports to enter the South American country.
Ronaldinho and his brother had travelled to Paraguay to take part in a number of promotional events, however, they were found to have produced false documents.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.
The coronavirus is real please obey the safety protocols initiated by the government, Your life is precious stay safe.
