After seeking temporary release from the Paraguayan jail, Brazilian legend Ronaldinho Gaucho has been moved to an exquisite luxury hotel where he now enjoys five-star treatment, SunSport reports.
The 2002 World Cup victor will now be placed under police custody at a hotel in the Paraguayan capital, Asuncion.
After spending more than a month in a Paraguayan prison, Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto Assis were released into house arrest on Tuesday evening after paying a reported $1.6 million (R29 million) in combined bail fees.
While Ronaldinho made headlines for all the wrong reasons after his recent arrest, the Brazil legend is not the first star from the country to fall foul of the law.
Ronaldinho has been released from prison following his arrest for allegedly trying to enter Paraguay using a fake passport.
He told local authorities in a hearing that the document was a gift from a Brazilian businessman, Wilmondes Sousa Liria, who was also jailed.
Ronaldinho and his brother were granted permission to stay at the hotel for the mean time by judge Gustavo Amarilla, with his case still being decided and the player's lawyers attempting to appeal the decision to jail him.
The pair were jailed one month ago to await trial, but their lawyers have posted bail of $1.6 million.
It was earlier speculated the brothers could spend six months in jail, and they were deemed to be a flight risk by the court which was well aware that Brazil also does not extradite its citizens.
Ronaldinho travelled to Paraguay to promote his autobiography. He was jailed in an improvised penitentiary in the south of Asunción, which is used for 150 risky criminals, including convicts of drug dealing, corruption and rape.
The versatile star, who could play across the forward line or as an attacking midfielder, played for Barca from 2003 to 2008, when he joined AC Milan.
