The publication quoted hospital sources, saying the former footballer was in intensive care, but no further information could be released for reasons of data protection.
Ronaldo, who owns a business on the island, arrived in the popular tourist destination a few days ago.
He retired from football in 2011 after a glittering career in which he won two Ballon d’Ors, as well as numerous titles on the domestic and international scenes.
In 2012, he contracted dengue fever, and has recently battled a thyroid problem which has caused him to struggle with his weight.
