Both of these seem to be alluding to this article from August 26: http://www.diariodocentrodomundo.com.br ... -do-mundo/
So it has all started with media coverage on a solely national level in Brazil, and stayed very unheard of in the rest of the world, more than some coverage on Romario twittering on the subject. And what has been written on that has basically been described as "only Romario speculating", so they haven't even managed any basic research of sources.

Only appropriately-trained and licensed mental-health
professionals can make an official diagnosis of an ASD.
Online tests can not provide an objective ASD diagnosis.
