World Pele in Hospital after Chemotherapy
The world’s football lengend, Pele is still in hospital for observation after undergoing chemotherapy and treatment for urinary tract infection.
While his condition remains stable, he is also said to be “struggling to eat or sleep”.
He has been left weakened after receiving an endoscopy last Wednesday – a procedure used in medicine to look inside the body.
According to ESPN medical report reads: “Edson Arantes do Nascimento [Pele] was admitted to Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein on the 13th to continue the treatment of a colon tumour identified in September 2021.
“During his stay, routine exams were performed, which indicated the presence of a urinary infection, a fact which extended the patient’s stay in the hospital.
Doctors are hopeful he will be fine and ready to leave for home soon.
