In what seems likely an unlikely meeting, Kerry footballer Paul Walsh met Brazilian legend, Ronaldino.

The 2018 Minor Footballer of the Year was pictured holding a Kerry GAA jersey alongside the 2002 World Cup winner, which was reportedly taken at the Brazilian's home in Rio de Janeiro, according to the Irish Examiner.

Ronaldinho is famed in his native Brazil and around the world for his illustrious career, which included two FIFA World Player of the Year awards and a Ballon d'Or in 2005. Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona FC and AC Milan are  among the clubs he represented.

In a video shared on TikTok, Walsh and Ronaldinho also showed off some of their skills in a game of keepie-uppies.
