Brazilian Ronaldo In Intensive Care In Ibiza Hospital

Brazilian Ronaldo In Intensive Care In Ibiza Hospital

Decorated football legend Ronaldo has been taken ill and reportedly taken to intensive care in Ibiza, Spain.

"Friends, I had a strong bout of flu in Ibiza and had to be taken to hospital on Friday but everything is ok", the 41-year-old said in a message on his official Twitter account.

Local newspaper Diario de Ibiza said the two-time Ballon d'Or holder and 2002 World Cup Golden Boot victor is in the intensive care unit at the private Policlinica Nuestra Senora del Rosario hospital on the Spanish island, after being taken to a public hospital on the island on Friday evening. Tomorrow I'll be discharged and I'll go home!

According to the Diario de Ibiza, he has now been admitted to the ICU of the Nuestra Señora del Rosario Polyclinic.

The paper also said that Ronaldo was still in intensive care but is making good progress.

How Premier League's top teams stand
Figures released by Deloitte show clubs paid out an estimated 1.23 billion pounds before the window closed - down 2 hundred million pounds on the same period past year .

He scored 62 goals in 98 appearances for his country and played for some of the top clubs in Europe.

Ronaldo owns property on Ibiza, a Spanish Mediterranean island, and is a frequent visitor. Two of those were the only ones that Brazil scored against Germany in the 2002 World Cup final.

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 picked up the Ballon d'Or award for the best player in the world in 1997 and 2002.
