Retired Brazilian striker Ronaldo left a clinic in Ibiza on Tuesday following a four-night stay for treatment for a flu infection.
“He left this morning at 10:30 am, not wanting to depart from the side where the press were waiting,” said a spokesman for the clinic in the center of Ibiza.
ChannelsTv reports that Ronaldo was being treated for a severe bout of flu infection after being taken to the hospital Friday.
Local newspaper Diario de Ibiza said the former Real Madrid star had been treated in intensive care for pneumonia at the city’s public hospital before being transferred to the clinic.
The 41-year-old, who was named FIFA’s world player of the year three times prior to his retirement from football in 2011, is a regular visitor to Ibiza, where he owns a house.
