Ronaldo in 'intensive care' after contracting pneumonia in Ibiza

Sources from local authorities in Ibiza and Formentera confirmed to Diario de Ibiza that Ronaldo was brought in to the Hospital de Can Misses de Ibiza on Friday evening.

"Friends, I had a very strong flu in Ibiza and I had to be hospitalised on Friday but everything is in order", the legendary Brazil forward said on Twitter.

Later that night, he requested transfer to the Nuestra Señora del Rosario hospital owned by Policlinica, a private health-care company.

Staff at Can Misses Hospital said they were unable to give out any information for "data protection reasons".

Ronaldo, whose club career took in spells at Cruzeiro, PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Corinthians, is on holiday in Ibiza, where he owns a house.

Considered one of the best strikers of his generation, Ronaldo played for a host of top European clubs including Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Barcelona.

Throughout a prosperous career, he scored 62 goals in 98 worldwide appearances for Brazil.

Ronaldo had taken part in the 2018 World Cup opening ceremony in Russian Federation. He has suffered since the end of his career with a thyroid problem that has caused him to gain a lot of weight, and back in 2012 he contracted Dengue fever and was admitted to hospital.
