Mrs Ronaldo in record transfer
Milene Domingues, aka Mrs Ronaldo, has signed for Atletico Madrid for a Spanish record fee of $310,000 (200,000).

Milene Domingues
Domingues is a ball-juggling record-holder

The 22-year-old left Italian women's Serie A side Fiamma Monza to follow her husband to Spain after he signed for Real Madrid.

And she has now been snapped up by Real's local rivals for 10 times the previous Spanish record for a female player.

"Ronaldinha", as she has been dubbed by the Spanish media, is rated as one of the best female footballers in Europe.

The ex-model also holds the record for ball juggling, keeping a football off the ground with 55,197 touches.

According to her husband, she "plays like Zinedine Zidane".
