Brazilians burn statue of Ronaldinho

Enraged Brazilian fans have burnt a seven meter tall statue of star Ronaldinho after the team was eliminated from the World Cup by France.

    He wasn't on fire, but his statue was

    The state which was made from resin and iron stood in the southern town of Chapeco in Santa Catarina was torched on Saturday night.

    "All that's left is a burnt out metal skeleton of a statue," a spokesperson said.

    The monument of the Barcelona player with a ball, was inaugurated two years ago to celebrate the player's first World Footballer of the Year award in 2004.
