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).

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

The newspaper's sources said the ex-footballer was still in intensive care, but was making good progress. The hospital could not immediately be reached by Reuters for comment.

Pneumonia affects the lungs and is caused by bacterial infection.

Symptoms - which include a cough and difficulty breathing - can develop suddenly over 24 to 48 hours.

Diario de Ibiza said that Ronaldo, 41, was recovering well.
