BRAZILIAN football icon Ronaldinho has been spotted posing with a Kerry GGA jersey, of all things.

The former Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG star was spotted meeting Brosna half-forward Paul Walsh, who was travelling through Brazil and wasn't going to pass up an unforgettable photo opportunity.

As a World Cup winner in 2002, Ronaldinho will have fond memories wearing green and gold, but this time it was the colours of Kerry rather than the Seleção.

Kerry GAA (naturally) got in on the fun, thanking Paul for spreading the good name of The Kingdom ahead of the All-Ireland semi-final next week.

"Look at our own Paul Walsh over visiting the one and only Ronaldinho!" The team tweeted.

"Paul you might mention to him that he could win a house in Kerry if he buys a ticket here and then you could show him around the beautiful Kingdom."

Ronaldinho, who retired in 2015, is considered one of the greatest players of all time and was renowned for his skilful and particularly beautiful style of football.

The 41-year-old won the Ballon d'Or in 2005, the Champions League in 2006 and is a two-time La Liga winner with Barcelona.

He won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002 while starring alongside compatriots Ronaldo and Rivaldo, forming one of the most deadly forward lines in history of the sport.

Recently Ronaldinho spent five months in a Paraguayan prison after allegedly entering the country with a fake passport. He made headlines after organising and competing in a futsal tournament during his time there.
