An era is over. One of the world's most renown footballers has retired from playing professionally. While his playing days may be over, Ronaldinho's legacy will live on forever.

With clubs next to his name such as FC Barcelona, PSG and AC Milan, the 37-year-old last played professionally in 2015 in his home country of Brazil, for Fluminense.

Some praised the one-of-a-kind footballer as one of the best to ever take to the pitch, and he quickly became a Brazilian legend, amassing 97 games including two World Cup campaigns and winning a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympic Games.

On his retirement, Ronaldinho's brother and agent Roberto Assis said, "Let's do something pretty big and nice after the Russia World Cup, probably in August."

So, another of the game's legends has retired after over 440 professional games, scoring 167 goals. An amazing career and an amazing player.
