Pele’s daughter confirmed that the Brazilian football legend will leave intensive care in hospital after one or two days as he continues to recover from surgery.
The 80-year-old, a three-time World Cup winner, has been hospitalized at Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo since undergoing surgery to remove a colon polyp this month.
Pele’s daughter, Kelly Nascimento, wrote on Instagram: He is recovering well after the surgery. He’s not in pain and he’s fine.. He’ll move to a normal room after a day or two and then go home.
He is strong and persistent, and he will make it through with the support and care of the wonderful team at Einstein and all the love and energy sent to him from the world.
And the hospital announced last Friday that Pele is recovering well.
Pele has suffered from upper leg problems in recent years and cannot walk without assistance, and he has not appeared much in public since the start of the emerging Corona Virus “Covid-19” pandemic, and he left his home near Santos a few times.
