Pele readmitted to Intensive Care after being discharged earlier this week
Pele has been readmitted to the ICU in the Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo, three days after being discharged following a successful tumor operation. It seems his condition has now deteriorated, but his daughter maintains “he is recovering well”.
The Brazil Legend was operated on last Tuesday, after which he took to Instagram to express how thankful he was for all the thoughts and prayers that were sent to him by his fans, friends, family and well-wishers.
My friends, this is a message for each of you. Don’t think for a minute that I haven’t read the thousands of loving messages I’ve received around here. Thank you very much to each one of you, who dedicated a minute of your day to send me positive energy. Love, love and love! I have already left the ICU and I am in my room. I continue every day happier, with a lot of disposition to play 90 minutes, plus extra time. We will be together soon!
– Pele wrote via Instagram.
In recent years, he has undergone kidney and prostate procedures, and also suffered hip problems. This has steered some fears among many, but his daughter, Kely Nascimento has taken to Instagram to clarify things:
There’s already a lot of anxiety roaming the world these days and we don’t want to be the reason for more.
This photo was taken just now. He is wearing a vest because he is Santista and the cold in SP bothers him! 😉
He is recovering well and within normal range. Promise!
