Currently training with Brazil's Olympic squad, Ronaldinho told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I am becoming reborn with Milan.

"I am improving day by day. I thank Carlo Ancelotti and the club for having authorised me to come to the Olympics, as it will be an excellent way of preparing for the Italian season.

"I am working hard, following a personal fitness programme with a specific diet and I think I'm close to 100 per cent now.

"On August 7, when we make our Olympic debut, I will be in ideal shape.

"Brazil might want me to play as a striker next to Pato, which is absolutely no problem for me, as I have already played in that role.

"If Ancelotti asks me to play there too, I am ready. Whether it is midfield or attack, I will give my all."
