The football world is worried. Hospitalized in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for several days due to a respiratory infection, Brazilian legend Pelé wanted to reassure his fans this Saturday in a press release on his Instagram page.
The man with three World Cups who is currently being treated for colon cancer says he is fine and thanks all the people who support him. “I want to reassure everyone. I am strong and confident and continue with my treatment as usual.“.
The medical statement from the Albert Einstein hospital where the 82-year-old is being treated states that Pele is in stable condition and is continuing his treatment. “He is responding appropriately to the treatment provided for his respiratory infection, with no worsening in the last 24 hours.”
On Saturday, the forward of the French national team, Kylian Mbappé, had posted a message of support for the Brazilian legend on his social networks. Very close to the former player, since their meeting in Paris during an event for the Hublot brand in 2018, the number 7 of Paris Saint-Germain stands behind the “king”.
