Ronaldo taken to Ibiza hospital with pneumonia

Brazilian World Cup victor and legendary striker Ronaldo has been admitted to an intensive care unit with pneumonia while on vacation in Ibiza, according to local reports.

Retired Brazilian striker Ronaldo has been hospitalised with pneumonia on the Spanish holiday island of Ibiza and is recovering well, a local newspaper reported Sunday (Aug 12). He was then transferred to a private hospital, and remains there, though he is reportedly making progress.

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

Pneumonia affects the lungs and is caused by bacterial infection.

Ronaldo is believed to have arrived in Ibiza for a summer break a few days ago.
