Brasilia:

Barcelona striker Ronaldinho reported for training with Brazil's national football team despite a twisted ankle, team doctor Jose Luis Runco revealed.

The Brazilian playmaker took part in a workout in the gymnasium with his team mates on Tuesday but then underwent a physiotherapy session rather than a run around the training field.

Runco said it was too early to say whether Ronaldinho would be fit in time for Sunday's 2010 World Cup qualifier in Peru.

"His right ankle is a little bit swollen and we will evaluate it day by day," said Runco.
