Ronaldo may have had a heart attack in 1998

What really happened to Ronaldo on the afternoon of July 12, 1998? Until now, the official version was that he suffered an epileptic seizure. Bruno Caru, the chairman of the Italian cardiology society, has his doubts. He thinks it was a heart attack.

Roberto Carlos was reportedly the first person to mention the possibility of a heart attack when he saw his friend convulsing at the hotel that day. In hospital, Ronaldo only had 18 heartbeats per minute. His heart basically stopped beating.

According to the doctor, Ronaldo shouldn’t have played during the final after this health scare. He could have died on the field of the Stade de France.
