Brazilian football superstar Ronaldo has been discharged from a hospital in Ibiza after suffering from pneumonia.
The 41-year-old Brazil World Cup winner, who assured fans on Sunday on social media, after he was taken to the hospital, that he would be alright, thanked his doctors, nurses, girlfriend Celina and fans for their help and support during his admission in the hospital. Ronald has since returned home on Tuesday.

The striker, known for his excessive speed and dribbling skills, won twice (1997 and 2002) the Ballon d’Or award for the best player in the world. He played for many clubs, including PSV Eindhoven, Corinthians, Cruzeiro, FC Barcelona, Internazionale, Milan, as well as Real and scored 62 times for Brazil. He equally netted both goals during the 2002 World Cup final that saw Brazil win the prestigious tournament against Germany.
