Brazil and Barcelona icon Ronaldinho scores from inside his own half

Despite being a few months short of his 38th birthday, Ronaldinho is still yet to officially retire from professional football.

That said, it's been quite a while since the Brazilian legend turned out in a competitive fixture, instead passing the time by taking part in exhibition matches and futsal tournaments around the world.

Indeed, Sunday afternoon saw him rock up for a benefit game in Sao Paulo and the ex-Barcelona veteran promptly delighted the crowd by walloping one in from inside his own half of the pitch.

Even the opposing goalkeeper applauded the effort. That's how good it was.

Ronaldinho has recently stated that he plans to bow out from football at some point next year in order to focus on his musical projects.

On this evidence, he might want to reconsider giving up the day job quite so soon.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
