Ronaldinho has retired from football, according to the player's brother and agent.
The 37-year-old was part of the triumphant Brazil 2002 World Cup squad, won the Champions League in 2006 with Barcelona and won the Ballon d'Or in 2005.
Roberto Assis told Brazilian outlets on Tuesday that his brother's career as a professional footballer "is over."
Assis said that farewell matches for Ronaldinho are likely to be scheduled after the World Cup in Russia, which ends July 15.
"He has stopped, it is ended," Assis said. "Let's do something pretty big and nice (for his farewell) after the Russia World Cup, probably in August.
"We will do various events in Brazil, Europe and Asia and, of course, we are arranging something with the Brazilian team as well."
