Retired footballer Ronaldo is reportedly in intensive care in an Ibiza hospital after coming down with pneumonia. The 41-year-old Brazilian is said to have been diagnosed with the illness after being rushed to Can Misses Hospital on the island on Friday evening.
Respected island daily Diario de Ibiza said he had asked for a transfer to a private hospital called Clinica Nuestra Senora del Rosario just before midnight the same day.
It quoted hospital sources as saying he was still in intensive care but he was making good progress.
Staff at Can Misses Hospital said they were unable to give out any information for “data protection reasons.”
No-one at the private hospital Ronaldo is currently said to be a patient at could be contacted early this afternoon for comment.
