Ronaldinho may not be able to leave Brazil at the moment but that hasn’t stopped him from being unveiled as one of his country’s new ambassadors.

The 39-year-old, who helped the Selecao win the World Cup in 2002, has had his passport seized due to an unpaid environmental fine and other debts.

The former two-time World Player of the Year and his brother were convicted of illegally building a fishing trap at Lake Guaiba in 2015 without proper licensing in a permanent preservation area.
