Panic as Brazil legend Ronaldo gets hospitalized for pneumonia

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

The former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter Milan player then asked to be transferred to a private hospital later on Friday evening to continue to receive treatment, according to Ibizan daily newspaper Diario de Ibiza.

He's believed to be in intensive care but further reports claim he's making good progress according to Mirror.

A spokesperson from Can Misses Hospital, where Ronaldo is being treated, 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.

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. He represented his country in three World Cups, including the 2002 edition, when Brazil won its fifth tournament title.

Following a glittering career at the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and AC Milan, Ronaldo's later years have seen him suffer with thyroid problems, which in turn have caused him to have issues controlling his weight.

He finished his career with 12 goals in the World Cup finals, tying with Pele for the all-time record.

Ronaldo went down with dengue fever in January 2012 and posted a picture of himself on Twitter hooked up to a drip in hospital alongside the message: 'Good morning to all those who began the New Year with dengue'.
