Cristiano Ronaldo's mum, Dolores Aveiro, has been admitted in a Portuguese hospital after suffering a stroke at about 5:30 am on Tuesday morning.
The mother of global football star was rushed to the Dr Nelio Mendonca Hospital in Madeira early this morning but local media reports that she is "conscious and stable" at this time.
Dolores will undergo new tests to determine her state of health in the next few hours as she continues to battle for her life.
Last year, the mother of four, revealed that she was “fighting for her life” following a new cancer drama on another breast.
Ronaldo's mum had been diagnosed with cancer in 2007 but she beat the disease, with Ronaldo going on to donate £100,000 to the hospital where she was treated for the construction of a new cancer centre.
However, ahead of Ronaldo's 35th birthday in February 2019, Dolores revealed she was battling new health problems.
"I was operated on another breast in Madrid, I’ve had radiotherapy and now I’m fighting for my life," the 65-year-old told a Portuguese TV station in an interview.
There has been no official statement from the hospital or the family but local report are that she has suffered an ischemic stroke.
Ischemic stroke is the most common type of stroke, it is caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain.
