Pele hospitalised again over colon tumour

Brazilian soccer legend Pele has been hospitalised to undergo more treatment on a colon tumour but he’s reported to be in stable condition and should be discharged in the next few days.

The 81-year-old three-time World Cup winner underwent a surgery at Sao Paulo’s Hospital Albert Einstein to remove a colon tumour in September and spent nearly a month hospitalised.

It was said at the time that he would need to undergo chemotherapy and, according to Wednesday’s latest information from the hospital, Pele is now “continuing” his treatment.

The soccer legend said on Twitter last month that he was “fine” and feeling better “every day.”

Pele was briefly put in intensive care after surgery on his right colon and has been recovering at his home in Guaruja, outside Sao Paulo.

Pele won the 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cups, and remains Brazil’s all-time leading scorer with 77 goals in 92 matches.
