Hospitalized since November 29, 2022 at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo due to failures in the chemotherapy treatment for his colon cancer, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pele, will see his stay extended at the Brazilian hospital. Indeed, the legend of the world soccer presents renal and cardiac dysfunctions that worsen his case, according to his doctors.

King Pele will have to stay in bed and will spend the end of year celebrations in hospital. His daughter Kelly Nascimento made a publication yesterday Wednesday on Instagram to announce that the family will spend Christmas alongside Pele in hospital.

King Pele had been urgently hospitalized at the Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo on Wednesday, November 29, 2022 report several Brazilian media.

While the Brazilian journalists feared the worst, the daughters of the legend of the game had reassured fans on social networks, emphasizing that there was no emergency and that it was simple examinations to perform.

Pele had been hospitalized because of a “swelling in his entire body” said ESPN Brasil, while noting that it seems that the chemotherapy treatment followed by the king of soccer for his colon cancer would not bring satisfactory results. In addition, the icon would suffer from mental confusion.

The 82-year-old former sports minister of Brazil has been battling colon cancer for some time. His motor skills have been reduced considerably.
Winner of 3 World Cups (1958, 1962, 1970), Pele is also the best scorer in the history of the Brazilian soccer selection (77 piges in 92 caps). A record that was equaled by Neymar during the Qatari World Cup.
