Pele 'Recovering Well' as Daughter of Brazil Legend Provides Update

Pele's daughter has revealed the Brazil legend is "recovering well" amid reports he has been readmitted to intensive care. The 80-year-old, Brazil's all-time leading goalscorer, has been in Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein Hospital since undergoing surgery to remove a tumour from his colon. Pele revealed earlier in the week that he had left intensive care, stating in an Instagram post that he was ready to "play 90 minutes, plus extra time" as he continued his recovery.
