Former Barcelona star Ronaldinho has been released from house arrest in Paraguay after nearly five months.

The ex- Brazil star and his brother, Roberto Assis, were jailed in March after entering the country with fake passports.

Both of them were then moved to house arrest in a Paraguayan hotel in April after serving 32 days in prison.

Ronaldinho, a key part of Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning squad, and his brother were released from house arrest on Monday.

While Ronaldinho will have to pay a $90,000 fine, his brother was fined $110,000, while travel conditions were imposed on both.

Former Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Milan forward Ronaldinho won 97 caps for Brazil between 1999 and 2013, scoring 33 times.
