AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti is happy to release new signing Ronaldinho for Brazil's Olympics campaign.

"In truth, seeing as he hasn't played much this past year, going to the Olympics could be useful for improving his form," Ancelotti told the club's official website.

"He really wasn't 100 per cent when he arrived at Milanello, this way he can get back to his best shape.

"Furthermore, him and [Milan forward and Brazil team-mate Alexandre] Pato have not played together before, and the Games could help them to find the right understanding."
