The former Brazil idol was appointed as club ambassador recently and was expected to make an appearance at Saturday's game against Deportivo.

His Camp Nou box remained empty throughout the 90 minutes, however, as Ronaldinho skipped his first day on the job.

The mystery over the Brazilian's whereabouts was cleared up later on when he posted a picture of himself soaking up the sun in nearby Casteldelfels.

He may have had a good time, but his new employers are unlikely to be very impressed with their eccentric ambassador!
