Pele’s health. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Pelé “took a little step back” in his recovery after undergoing a surgery to remove a tumor from his colon, his daughter Kely Nascimento reported on Friday, who assured that the legendary former soccer player is doing well in a hospital in Sao Paulo, according to the AP news agency and the Daily Mail.





However, the Albert Einstein hospital reported that Pelé, whose name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, had to return to a “semi-intensive care” unit, after suffering “a brief respiratory instability.”

In a statement, the clinic stated that the former athlete is stable and “continues to recover,” without giving further details of the former soccer star’s current state of health.

Kely Nascimento posted a photo of herself with her father on Instagram on Friday. He claimed that he had taken the image “right now” in his room at the Albert Einstein.

“He is recovering well and within a normal frame. I promise! ”Nascimento said. “In the normal picture of a man of his age, after such an operation, sometimes two steps are taken forward and one backward. It is very normal. Yesterday, he was tired and took a little step back ”.

Instead, Nascimento added that his father had taken another “two steps forward” on Friday, without clarifying why, which left some concern among fans around the world.

The hospital had not released new information on Pele’s health since Tuesday, when he was released from intensive care. Later, Pelé confirmed on social media that he feels good.

“My friends, I continue to recover very well,” wrote Pele on Instagram. “I received visits from family members and I continue to smile every day. Thank you for all the love I receive from you ”. Filed Under: Pele’s Health

Doctors detected the tumor in late August, when Edson Arantes do Nascimento came in for some routine tests. His surgery took place on September 4.

The star helped Brazil win the World Cup in 1958, 1962 and 1970. He is still the top scorer for the Brazilian team, with 77 goals in 92 games and for many the best player in the world.

“O Rei” has had locomotion problems after hip replacement surgery in 2012, which is why he has had to move around in a wheelchair in his few public appearances.

He also underwent interventions due to kidney and prostate problems. Although the daughter assures that it is going well and that it is not easy, the rumors about her physical condition point to a more complicated situation.

The daughter also commented: “Hello friends. I don’t know what’s going on with the rumors, but my DMs are on the rise! There is already a lot of anxiety traveling the world these days and we do not want to be the reason for more ”.

He added: “This photo was taken just now. He wears a vest because he is Santista and the cold in SP bothers him! He is recovering well and within normal range. Promise! Filed Under: Pele’s Health

He also confessed something: “He doesn’t like it when I say this, so please don’t tell him, but he’s an O’Keefe gentleman. The normal recovery scenario for a man of his age, after an operation like this, is sometimes two steps forward and one step back ”.

I want to thank once again, and always, the brilliant team here at Einstein and even more gratitude for all the good energy they are putting out. Filed Under: Pele’s Health

He continued: “Thank you very much to each of you, who dedicated a minute of your day to send me positive energy. Love, love and love! I’m out of the ICU and I’m in my room. I keep getting happier every day, with a lot of willingness to play 90 minutes, plus extra time. Soon we’ll be together!”. Filed Under: Pele’s Health
