Sources from local authorities in Ibiza and Formentera confirmed to Diario de Ibiza that Ronaldo was brought in to the Hospital de Can Misses de Ibiza on Friday evening.

Ibizan newspaper Diario de Ibiza said he had requested to be transferred to a private hospital, Clinica Nuestra Senora del Rosario, later the same day.

At the time, the Brazilian managed to handle the indisposition humorously with his trademark smile via tweet from his hospital bed saying: "Good morning to all those who began the New Year with dengue".

The Brazilian, regarded as one of the world's best-ever players, owns a house in Ibiza and is a regular visitor to the island.

The former Barcelona and Real Madrid star was spending a few days on holiday on the island of Ibiza when he went to the hospital at around 18:30 in the afternoon because he was suffering from chest pains. Tissue swells, and it can cause coughing and breathing difficulties.

Since retirement, however, he has battled thyroid problems and gained significant weight.

It can be life-threatening, especially among the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

The crowning achievement of his career was his display in the World Cup final in 2002. He was part of the Brazil squad who won the 1994 World Cup - although he did not play - and helped them reach the 1998 final.
