Photo: Brazil Legend Ronaldinho Grows VERY UGLY Beard In Prison

Ronaldinho has recorded a special message – his famous smile for the family of his prison football team-mate.

The 40-year-old has grown a beard since he was thrown behind bars for allegedly trying to enter Paraguay with a fake passport.

Former Paraguay striker Nelson Cuevas raised serious concerns as he claimed Ronaldinho was “sad” in jail.

But the Brazilian showed off his trademark toothy grin as he filmed a clip from inside of the prison.

The 2002 World Cup winner sent a message intended for the family of his new prison pal and football team-mate, identified as jailed police officer Pablo Cesar Morales.

Speaking in Spanish, Ronaldinho said: “Hi everyone, hello to the Morales family.

“I'm here with my companion, my attacker, Pablo.

“He plays very well. We're together and we're going to play again very soon.”
