After spending 32 days in a Paraguayan jail following the fake passport ordeal, both Ronaldinho and his brother and agent Roberto de Assis Moreira have been released after his lawyers paid a total of $1.6 million in bail.
According to the Daily Mail, the pair will be housed at Hotel Palmaroga in Asuncion, the capital city of Paraguay, and it’s fair to see their new digs are a lot swankier then the prison they were staying in.

The Barcelona and Milan legend will also be receiving five-star room service, while his brother is believed to be in the executive suite, which is located two doors down from the presidential suite.
The hotel’s luxuries do not end there, however, as built on its rooftop is a beautiful swimming pool, while the bar serves vintage cocktails for guests.
The hotel, built in the 19th century, is reportedly offering discounts on rooms due to COVID-19 – with the presidential suite said to be £87-per-night – considerably cheaper than it would normally be.
Last month, ex-Paraguay footballer Nelson Cuevas visited Ronaldinho in prison and revealed that the Brazilian was struggling with the situation.
“He is sad. Hopefully, he can get out soon,’ Cuevas told Infobae. “He is just sad because of the situation. ‘His lawyers are handling the rest. Hopefully he can get out of there soon.”
