Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho will visit Beirut tomorrow, Wednesday, in solidarity with Lebanon on the anniversary of the Beirut Port explosion (August 4th 2020), which left more than 200 martyrs and hundreds of wounded, in addition to the extensive property damage it caused in the capital.

The football star's tour, part of his "in solidarity with Lebanon and the Lebanese" initiative, will start on Wednesday, at the Karantina fire brigade, and will include Beirut Port and the port's Civil Defense center.

Ronaldinho previously visited Lebanon in 2017 to participate in the Barca-Madrid "Legends" match, and met President Michel Aoun in the Baadba Palace.

Ronaldinho is one of Brazil's most celebrated players. He was part of the lineup that won the 2002 World Cup, was a star player in FC Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and was arguably one of the best players of his generation. He also won the FIFA Confederations Golden Ball Award in 1999.
