Pele’s Cancer Has Advanced, Says Hospital
Brazil great Pele’s cancer has advanced, according to the hospital where the 82-year-old is being treated.
The three-time World Cup winner has been in hospital for just over three weeks.His daughter said on social media that he would spend Christmas in hospital.
The Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein said Pele “presents cancer disease progression and requires greater care related to renal and cardiac dysfunctions”.
He had a tumour removed from his colon in September 2021 and has since had regular treatment.
“Our Christmas at home has been suspended,” wrote by his daughter, Kely Nascimento, on Instagram.
“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.”
