Brazilian Football Icon Pele’s Cancer Worsens; To Spend Christmas In Hospital

Highlights:

  • Pele is under elevated care after his cancer got worse.
  • The 82-year-old has been receiving medical attention since late November.
  • In September 2021, the icon of Brazil had a colon tumour removed.

Due to “elevated care” needed due to “kidney and heart dysfunctions,” Brazilian football legend Pele will spend Christmas in the hospital due to his advanced cancer.

Pele, who is 82 years old and is widely regarded as one of the greatest football players of all time, has been receiving treatment and attending to a respiratory infection at the Albert Einstein hospital since November.

It also stated that his cancer had “advanced,” although Pele wasn’t in intensive care. Pele, widely regarded as the greatest player to ever play the game of football, was admitted to a hospital in Sao Paulo on November 29 for what his medical staff described as a re-evaluation of his chemotherapy treatments, which he has been receiving since having surgery to remove a colon tumour in September 2021.

Pele’s daughter Kely Nascimento posted on Instagram, saying, “Our Christmas at home has been suspended,” and thanked fans for their support.

“We decided with the doctors that, for various reasons, it would be better for us to stay here with all the care that this new family at Einstein gives us. We will even make some caipirinhas (no kidding). We love you and we will give up an update next week,” she added.

Since a colon tumour was removed in September of last year, Pele has been undergoing regular medical treatment. The AP news agency noted that neither his family nor the hospital had commented on whether the cancer has spread to other organs.

Brazil won the World Cup under Pele’s leadership in 1958, 1962, and 1970. During the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Neymar recently tied Pele’s record for most goals scored by a Brazilian player (77 goals). During the World Cup, Brazilian athletes and supporters paid tribute to Pele by raising large banners bearing his image.

Following the 2022 final, in which Argentina defeated France in a penalty shootout 4-2, Pele sent his best wishes to Argentina and praised Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe for their performance.

“Today, football continues to tell its story, as always, in an enthralling way,” Pele said. “What a gift it was to watch this spectacle of the future of our sport.”
