Hacker caught accessing bank account of AC Milan star Ronaldinho

AC Milan star Ronaldinho has had his bank account attacked by a Spanish computer hacker.

Sport says the hacker gained access to some of his mother's mail and found the player's online banking details.

He then tried to transfer €800,000 from Ronaldinho's account to that of a presumed accomplice.

However, there was apparently a €35,000 limit on withdrawals, alerting the bank to possible fraudulent activity.

The hacker will be tried next week in Barcelona. The prosecution has asked for a three-year jail sentence and a €12,000 fine.
