Former Brazil and Real Madrid striker Ronaldo Nazario was discharged from an Ibiza hospital yesterday after suffering "heavy flu" while on holiday.

The 41-year-old was admitted Friday after reportedly suffering from pneumonia. 

Hospital sources told Spanish media that Ronaldo left yesterday.

Ronaldo assured fans on social media Sunday that he was fine and would soon be ready to go home after suffering "a heavy bout of flu."

Ronaldo retired from football in 2011 following a hugely successful career which featured stints at PSV Eindhoven, Barcelona, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Brazilian sides Corinthians and Cruzeiro as well as Real Madrid. 

He won the Ballon d'Or award for the best player in the world in 1997 and 2002.
