Ronaldinho is not in a good state of mind in prison despite photos of him smiling, former Paraguay striker Nelson Cuevas claims after taking a selfie with the Brazilian legend.

The 40-year-old visited Ronaldinho in prison after he allegedly used fake passport into the South American nation.

And the former River Plater star admitted that the Brazilian icon is in a shadow of himself despite being kept in a decent part of the prison.

“He is sad. Hopefully, he can get out soon.

“He is just sad because of the situation. His lawyers are handling the rest. I hope he can get out of there soon,” Cuevas said.

Cuevas agreed that Ronaldinho had a relatively cushy experience behind bars.

He said: "In comparison to other penitentiaries, yes.

“But it's not what he's used to. The place is big and he was able to play football too. He is with his brother in a room with two beds."

Cuevas, who played for Paraguay in two World Cups from 2002, shared his selfie with Ronaldinho on social media.

And he wrote alongside the image: "I want to give tremendous strength to this genius who made history in world football and say that there are Paraguayans who support him with everything!"
