Pelé to remain hospitalized due to respiratory infection



Pele has a respiratory infection and will remain at the hospital where he's been since Tuesday.

The 82-year-old Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pele, is being treated with antibiotics, Hospital Albert Einstein said in a statement on Friday.

"His response has been adequate and the patient, who remains in a regular bedroom, is stable, with an overall improvement in his health condition," the hospital added, reports AP.

Pele thanked fans in an Instagram post late Thursday for the well-wishes he's received in a fight against cancer. He had a colon tumor removed in September 2021 and has since gone through chemotherapy.

Neither the hospital nor his family has said whether the former footballer's cancer has spread to other organs. He has checked in with the hospital every month.

The hospital confirmed on Friday that the three-time World Cup winner has had to regulate his chemotherapy medication.

Kely Nascimento, one of Pele's daughters, extended her father's thankful message to Qatar and Brazil coach Tite, who sent positive messages to the former footballer.

ESPN Brasil reported on Wednesday that Pele was taken to hospital because of "general swelling."

Pele helped Brazil win the 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cups and remains the team's all-time leading scorer with 77 goals in 92 matches.
