📸 Ronaldinho gets lookalike to sign autographs and take fan selfies

The Brazilian is mobbed having been one of the greatest players of the 21st century

This is one of the more bizarre stories of the week. Ronaldinho reportedly used a lookalike to sign autographs and pose for selfies with fans following an exhibition match in Sao Paulo.

The former Barcelona star attended the match organised by Falcao and Denilson which was played in front of nearly 10,000 supporters on Sunday and wowed crowds with his skills and tricks.

However, the Brazilian, now 38, apparently dodged the press and fans, according to Diario Sport, though had a double meet with fans for pictures and signatures after the game.

It is unknown whether fans were aware that it was not Ronaldinho though his lookalike is used to being asked by people for photos.

The Samba star also played for PSG and Milan in Europe before finishing his career with Fluminense in his homeland.
