"I have nothing to say," he told the press. "She is good, everything is good. The important thing is that she is recovering. Everyone is supporting here. Everyone is united. I was there this morning."

Aveiro was sent to intensive care after the stroke but was said to be stable and recovering well. Ronaldo returned to Italy where he partook in training on Wednesday after asking permission to fly in his private jet to be by his mother's side.
