Ronaldinho proves he's still got it as he embarrasses pitch invader during Barcelona legends' match | The Sun

RONALDINHO proved that he is still the ultimate showman after embarrassing a pitch invader during a Barcelona legends’ match.

The now 43-year-old Brazilian World Cup winner lifted the lot during his illustrious playing career for club and country.

And despite now being retired for eight years, the superstar appears to have lost none of his magic.

The two-time Ballon D’or winner recently appeared for former club Barcelona’s Legends team when play was interrupted by one over-eager supporter.

The man raced towards the Samba ace and Ronaldinho could not resist having some fun.

Just as the intruder got near him, the ex-Milan and Paris Saint-Germain attacker left his admirer for dead with a great dummy after firstly giving him the thumbs-up.

He firstly stepped straight into the man’s path as if he was going to block him off.

But he quickly hopped back in the other direction as a huge grin spread across his face.

The stranger reacted by trying to dodge the move but he was left looking foolish.

Security were quickly on the scene to apprehend the man, but it did not take long for Ronaldinho’s dummy to go viral on social media.

“Ronaldinho skilled the pitch invader,” wrote one fan.

Another called him “a natural entertainer” as a fellow supporter hailed him as a “true magician”.

Barcelona Legends were taking on their counterparts from Maccabi Haifa in Israel this week.

And even though they fell behind, Ronaldinho and his star-studded pals bounced back to win 5-1, with the Brazil icon even getting his name on the scoresheet.

That was the team’s second game while out in Israel after they also recorded a 5-3 victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv's Legends.

After hanging up his boots following a stint with Fluminese, Ronaldinho returned to the game in 2018 for a brief stint with Indian Futsal side the Goa 5.

He retired as one of just eight players to have won the Champions League, World Cup and Ballon d'Or.

Ronaldinho scored 266 goals in 699 games across a sensational club career and he also received 97 caps for Brazil, netting 33 goals.
