The Man, The Legend: Former Brazil Star Ronaldinho Officially Retires From Football at the Age of 37

The events in Brazil, Europe and Asia.

The 2005 Ballon d'Or recipient has since made a decision to hang up his boots, with Assis saying: "He [Ronaldinho] has stopped, it is ended".

Assis suggested his brother may play in some farewell matches, including one with the Brazil national team.
