Ronaldinho has been warned he could face up to six months in jail.

And the Barcelona veteran has been playing footvolley with other inmates to pass the time.

The 40-year-old proved his touch was as good as ever as he stole the show while playing on the outdoor court.

When the opposition served the ball over the net, Ronaldinho effortlessly knocked the ball to his team-mate with one touch.

He then coolly nodded the ball back into the other half before his team won a point.

After a quicker breather, Ronaldinho scored another point with a cheeky header.

The 2002 World Cup winner also had a chance to show off his skills when the prison hosted a futsal tournament.

Despite being reluctant to take part, he still managed to score five goals and make six assists in one game.

Ronaldinho and his brother, Roberto de Assis, are being kept in a specialised unit at the jail in Asuncion.

He celebrated his 40th birthday behind bars this month with a huge BBQ and cake.

But former Paraguay striker Nelson Cuevas has revealed the Brazil legend has lost his famous smile while in prison.
