Pneumonia is swelling of the tissue in one or both lungs and is usually caused by a bacterial infection.

He won his first cap for Brazil as a 17-year-old and went on to score 62 goals in 97 global appearances, including both goals when Brazil beat Germany 2-0 in the 2002 World Cup final.

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

Ronaldo, who was on holiday when he was taken ill, retired from football in 2011 following a hugely successful career that featured stints at PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Brazilian sides Corinthians and Cruzeiro as well as Real Madrid, where he is a club ambassador.

During his playing career, Ronaldo was famous for his blistering pace and phenomenal goal-scoring record.
