Ronaldinho could finally regain freedom for the first time in four months after being placed under house arrest in Paraguay.

The 40-year-old former Barcelona star was arrested alongside his brother/agent in the South American country earlier this year for using fake documents to gain entry into the country.

They were granted partial bail having coughed out a staggering £1.2 million bail but that did not guarantee them total freedom.

SunSport claims that the prosecutors are almost done with most part of the case but are unable to build any further substantial evidence.

Reports claim the passport bore Ronaldinho's name, with his correct birthplace and date of birth, but it claimed he was a naturalised citizen of Paraguay.

The World Cup winner was said to have been invited to Paraguay to promote the charity “La Fundación Angelical,” - an organisation that provides medical assistance to low-income children.

He was also going to present his book Genius of Life.
