  • Former Brazilian footballer Ronaldo is reportedly in intensive care in an Ibiza hospital after contracting pneumonia

The former Real Madrid and Barcelona forward was said to have been rushed to intensive care in Ibiza after being struck down with pneumonia, eventually being transferred to a private hospital, Clinica Nuestra Señora del Rosario.

"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.

At the time, the Brazilian managed to handle the indisposition humorously with his trademark smile via tweet from his hospital bed saying: "Good morning to all those who began the New Year with dengue".

Contacted by AFP, a hospital spokeswoman said she was unable to give any information for privacy reasons.

Ronaldo is a frequent visitor to the Balearic party island of Ibiza and owns a property there.

No-one at the private hospital Ronaldo is now said to be a patient at could be contacted early on Sunday for comment.

Ronaldo was also a star for his country Brazilian bagging an incredible 62 goals in just 98 games.

He was instrumental when Brazil won the World Cup in 2002, scoring both goals as they beat Germany 2-0 in the final. 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.
