Ronaldinho remains one of the most popular footballers on the planet despite not being really relevant at the top level of European football for the best part of five years. His travelling football roadshow is now back in Brazil after a brief stint in Mexico, and they will be very glad to have him back.
"El Gaucho" is absolutely worshiped in his home country, and every kid kicking a ball around the streets or beaches would no doubt list the former Ballon D'Or winner as one of their idols, so Nike have finally made the correct decision to start using Ronaldinho in their marketing again.
Just look at the faces of these Brazilian footballers at a Nike event when Ronaldinho shows up, and also check out the sublime rabona at the end of the clip:
The "fake" question is of course going to be raised as it's an ad from Nike, but you just know that the legend that is Ronaldinho could ping the crossbar with a first time rabona pretty much any time he wanted to, so we're choosing to believe.
Doing keepy-uppies while volleying the ball off the bar then catching it and continuing keepy-uppies four times in a row? Obviously fake.
A cheeky rabona off the bar from about 15 yards? That has to be all Ronnie.
