Soccer: Former Brazilian star Robinho arrested to begin serving his 9-year sentence

# Soccer: Former Brazilian and Manchester City striker Robinho has been taken into custody to serve a nine-year prison sentence for rape. This comes after a court ruled the 40-year-old should serve the sentence in Italy. In 2017, he and five other Brazilians were found guilty of raping a woman at a nightclub in Milan in 2013. Robinho was arrested in his home city of Santos after his lawyers failed in their attempt to delay his detention. Robinho has 100 caps for his country.
