Ronaldo Fenômeno: illness prevents former star from attending the debut of the Selection in the World Cup. Know details

Ronaldo Fenômeno is in Qatar and would watch, this Thursday (24), the first game of the Brazilian National Team in the 2022 World Cup. However, the former player’s plans were frustrated. The star player, whose life was portrayed in a documentary released this year, tested positive for Covid-19a disease that recently plagued other famous people, such as countryman Zé Neto and singer Joelma, for the fifth time.

On social networks, Ronaldo appeared visibly congested to reveal the diagnosis to the public. “Last night, I had small flu symptoms. I didn’t worry too much, but this morning I woke up with flu symptoms, a mild flu, and I ended up taking a Covid test to clear up the doubt and I tested positive. I’ll be isolated for the next five days here in my hotel room. As you can see, everything is fine.“, said.

The former athlete regretted not being able to personally honor the debut of the Brazilian team in the Cup. “I’m watching the World Cup here in Qatar, I was scheduled to watch the national team’s game at the stadium. I won’t be able to go, but I’ll be here in the crowd. I want to wish all the luck in the world to the Brazilian team, blow it up!“, twisted.



Covid-19 almost embezzled the World Cup after hitting an important icon of Brazilian culture: Galvão Bueno. The narrator was admitted on the last day 11 after testing positive for the disease. The decision to go to the hospital was to speed up the recovery process.

Despite being discharged in time, Galvão was left out of the narration of the first game of the World Cup, played by Qatar and Ecuador. The classic narrator makes his debut in his last World Cup this Thursday (24) with the match between Brazil and Serbia.
