São Paulo – Legendary Brazilian soccer player Pele is back in the intensive care unit three days later, recovering from colon tumor surgery. This was reported to the Brazilian media, and hospital representatives did not comment on the report. According to his daughter, Killa Nascimento, the former formidable striker is recovering as well as possible.
Eighty-year-old Pele underwent surgery last Saturday at Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo after being diagnosed with a tumor during a routine examination. He was transferred to the regular circuit on Tuesday. He returned to JIS on Friday, according to ESPN, the main reason being acid reflux.
However, his daughter calmed the situation on the social network. “She’s recovering well, as far as I can go. I swear,” Kenny Nasimentova wrote on Instagram, attaching a photo of her smiling father to the text. “The scenario for a normal recovery for a man his age after such an operation is sometimes two steps forward and then one step back. He was tired yesterday and took a step back. Today he took two steps forward today.”
Three-time world champion (1958, 1962, 1970) and historically the top scorer for the Brazilian national team, he has reduced his mobility since hip surgery in 2012. He underwent kidney surgery two years ago and had knee and spine problems in the past. Information was provided by DPA and AP.
