Ronaldo health latest: Brazil legend in Ibiza hospital with pneumonia | Daily Star

Former Brazil star Ronaldo was admitted to hospital in Ibiza last Friday with a case of pneumonia.

He was then transferred to a private hospital, and remains there, though he is reportedly making progress.

Here's hoping he pulls through.

Retired Brazilian striker Ronaldo said Sunday he is in hospital with a "bad flu" on the Spanish holiday island of Ibiza but reassured fans that he will be out in a day.

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

Ronaldo retired from football in 2011 after a glittering career with Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

Ronaldo was spending his summer vacation in Ibiza and owns a house in the area.

Pneumonia is swelling of the tissue in one or both lungs and is usually caused by a bacterial infection.

He won his first cap for Brazil as a 17-year-old and went on to score 62 goals in 97 global appearances, including both goals when Brazil beat Germany 2-0 in the 2002 World Cup final.

Since retirement, however, he has battled thyroid problems and gained significant weight.

It comes just weeks after the two-time World Cup victor was in Russian Federation to open the 2018 tournament, appearing on screen with the official ball and taking part in a passing routine with a local child.
