Brazil football legend Pele hospitalized amid cancer battle

    SPORT  30 November 2022 - 20:36

    Brazilian soccer legend Pele has been hospitalized as he battles cancer, his daughter said on social media on November 30, adding that there was "no surprise or emergency" involved.

    Kely Nascimento's post to Instagram came after ESPN Brasil reported that Pele had been admitted to Albert Einstein Hospital with "general swelling" and was undergoing several tests for more in-depth assessment of his health issues, The Star reports.

    "Lots of alarm in the media today concerning my dad's health. He is in the hospital regulating medication," Nascimento wrote. "There is no emergency or new dire prediction. I will be there for New Years and promise to post some pictures."

    The 82-year-old had a tumor removed from his colon in September 2021 and has since been in and out of the hospital for treatment on a regular basis.

    ESPN Brasil reported that Pele was having cardiac issues and his medical staff showed concern that his chemotherapy treatment was not having the expected results.

    Pele's manager and the Albert Einstein Hospital did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
