Ronaldo is set to be discharged from hospital after suffering from a bout of “strong flu” while on holiday.
Reports had indicated the Brazilian football icon had been diagnosed with pneumonia while in Ibiza.
But the 41-year-old, a two-time Ballon d’Or winner during his glittering playing career, calmed fears over his health with a social media post on Sunday, revealing he has been given the all-clear by doctors.
Amigos, tuve un cuadro de fuerte gripe en Ibiza y tuve que ser internado el viernes pero ya está todo en orden. Mañana recibo el alta y vuelvo a casa. ¡Gracias a todos/as por vuestro cariño y vuestros mensajes!

“Friends, I had a bout of strong flu in Ibiza and I had to be hospitalised on Friday but everything is in order now,” Ronaldo wrote on Twitter. Tomorrow [Monday], I will receive the all-clear and return home. Thank you to everyone for your affection and your messages!”
