Brazilian soccer great Pele said he would be home from hospital in a few days after undergoing chemotherapy as part of his treatment following an operation to remove a colon tumor.
Three-time World Cup winner Pele, who was admitted to Sao Paulo’s Hospital Albert Einstein on Wednesday, underwent an operation to remove the tumor in September and spent nearly a month under care.
“I wanted to share this achievement with you. After all, every little victory is a reason to celebrate.
Widely considered to be one of the greatest footballers of all time, Pele has suffered from a series of health issues in recent years. Hip surgery left him with recurring pain and he cannot now walk unaided.
