As Brazil legend Ronaldinho's passport has been seized with authorities over unpaid tax debt, it's been revealed that an amount of €6 has been found in his bank account.
A judge in Brazil has ordered the seizure of Ronaldinho's passport due to unpaid debts of two million euros but an amount of just six euros has been found in his bank accounts by the authorities.
Ronaldinho and his brother were fined for illegal construction in a protected area, but mortgaging their property hasn't been enough to pay off the debt due to the high interest generated over the four years of judicial conflict.
His lifestyle, however, doesn't correspond to the figure found in his accounts, as during the last couple of weeks alone he has travelled to China and Japan for advertising reasons - which has raised suspicions over his current bank balance.
According to Spanish publication Marca, he has also been in different countries in Europe and Africa, while Nike have even launched a line of shoes under his name as a tribute which, according to the judge, should bring him significant income.
