Ronaldinho in tears after floating the ball into the top corner on way to hat trick

Dirty Tackle

Ronaldinho had a good cry after scoring the first goal in Atletico-MG's 6-0 win against Figueirense to snap a four-match winless streak. Ronaldinho ended up with a hat trick, but it was his first goal -- a shot that at first appeared to be a cross but floated into the far corner of the goal -- that brought out the emotions.

The 32-year-old immediately knelt down and began to cry as his teammates crowded around him. It was an unusual sight, especially coming from a player so famous for his smiles on the pitch, but after his stepfather died of a heart attack on Friday, he was clearly overcome by the mix of emotions.

In addition to his three goals, Ronaldinho also set up his teammates for two others, keeping Atletico-MG six points behind first-place Fluminense. His best days as a footballer might be behind him, but he can still make a difference for his club...whether he means to or not.
