Ronaldinho celebrated his 40th with a huge BBQ in jail after receiving birthday messages from fellow Brazil icons Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos.
The Samba star was enjoying his landmark birthday in a Paraguayan prison after allegedly using a fake passport to enter the South American country.
He has been told he faces spending six months behind bars.
But he received some good news in the form of Instagram messages from his fellow 2002 World Cup winners.
Ronaldo, 43, posted a photo of himself with Ronaldinho and the caption: "Congratulations Xará (mate)! May you overcome this difficult stage of your life with the same joy as always! #Ronaldinho40 @ronaldinho."
Carlos, 46, posted a photo of them playing in a game together, doing keepy-ups and hugging.
He wrote in his message: "Best wishes friend @ronaldinho 40 years old #happybirthday my friend."
