Brazilian legend Ronaldo, 37, is to marry again after his girlfriend Paula Morais accepted his proposal on her 28th birthday.

Il Fenomeno only retired two years ago after battling issues with his weight and will be a key part of the build up to the 2014 World Cup hosted in his native Brazil.

The former Barcelona, Inter, Milan and Real Madrid striker scored 62 goals in 98 games during his international career and was married four times within the span of 18 years - ending his recent seven-year marriage to Bia Anthony last December.

However, the star is taking the plunge again and posted a message on Twitter after Morais, who works as a DJ, accepted, saying: "Love you, Paula Morais."
