Ronaldinho lookalike being escorted by securities off the pitch.

A Ronaldinho lookalike managed to evade security and access to Argentina star player Lionel Messi yesterday.

Lionel Messi immediately burst into laughter when he was approached by the man later identified as Robinson Oliveira who was a dead ringer of his former Barcelona team-mate Ronaldinho.

Robinson told Goal.com “when he saw me he was shocked because he thought I was the real Ronaldinho and he told me that I didn’t need to run on the pitch to see him.

“What are you doing running on here to see me?’ When he held my hand, I went down on my knees [and bowed]. It was so emotional,” he said.
