Brazilian police arrested former footballer Robson de Souza ‘Robinho’ this Thursday in one of his residences on the coast of São Paulo to begin serving the nine-year prison sentence imposed on him for a group rape in Italy.

Federal Police agents arrested the former forward at his home in Santos, the city where he trained as a player, and took him to the police station after the Superior Court of Justice of Brazil will confirm the sentence imposed on him by the Italian Justice and ordered his imprisonment.
