Agent says former World Cup winner Ronaldinho has retired

SAO PAULO (AP) Ronaldinho, "the ever-smiling magician" of Barcelona, as described by his former club on Tuesday, has ended his professional career.

Roberto Assis, the brother and agent of the 2005 Ballon d'Or winner, announced that the 37-year-old wants to play a series of farewell matches from August onward - and then focus on his already busy life off the pitch.

Ronaldinho played his last professional match in 2015 for Brazil's Fluminense and has shown little interest in playing since then.
