The two-time World Player of the Year attended an event in Hungary on Tuesday to promote the launch of a new sport - which is played on something resembling a curved table tennis table.

Technical ability and concentration are considered to be key attributes for top Teqball players, which suggests that it should be right up Ronaldinho’s street.
