BRAZIL great Ronaldo was spotted at the Rio Carnival with a mystery brunette on his arm.
The football legend, 41, often returns to his hometown to show off his fancy footwork but seemed to be without long-term girlfriend Celina Locks, 27.
Dressed in a bright purple top, the iconic No9 was still turning heads seven years after hanging up his boots.
Ronaldo is keeping tabs on his countrymen as they prepare for the World Cup in Russia.
He said: "Neymar is a superb player, maybe he will be the best in the world in a few years, and Real Madrid need the best.
"I didn't plan for anything other than being at Inter for five years, but then there was the possibility and I went because Madrid is a team where everyone wants to play.
"I haven't heard any official representative of Real Madrid say anything about Neymar.

"They should think about what they have and this year it's difficult for Madrid, they have to keep going and end well.
"The Champions League is a competition that they do well in and we will see how it ends, because everything changes very quickly in football."
