The retired Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho, also known as Ronaldinho Gaúcho, is a highly eligible bachelor, enjoying the celebrity and spoils that come with a storied career in soccer.

“It’s the biggest lie,” he said, when asked about the rumors at a music event in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday. “I’m not getting married.”
