Former FIFA president Joao Havelange has been hospitalised in Rio de Janeiro local radio reported.
Radio Band News says the 95-year-old Havelange was admitted to the Samaritano Hospital late Sunday night.
Later, the Samaritano Hospital in Rio de Janeiro released a statement Monday saying the 95-year-old Havelange is undergoing treatment for an infection.
Only last year Havelange resigned from the International Olympic Committee citing undisclosed health reasons. The resignation came while he faced a possible suspension for allegedly taking kickbacks from former FIFA marketing partner ISL in the 1990s which was made public in many books depicting deep corruption within FIFA.
