This was reported by the Brazilian news portal “G1” on Tuesday, citing the Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo. “The general condition of the patient is progressively improving,” the medical bulletin said. Pelé’s vital signs are stable, he is conscious and there have been no new complications.
The 82-year-old has been in the hospital in São Paulo for several days. According to media reports, chemotherapy is no longer effective for Pelé after a tumor in his intestines was removed last year. However, his family had rejected reports that he was about to die.
A post on Pelé’s Instagram account said he was strong and full of hope. A photo showed him during the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. Pelé, who has won 92 caps and three World Cups, wanted to follow Brazil’s round of 16 game against South Korea on Monday from the hospital and cheer on the players. Brazil internationals, fans at the World Cup in Qatar and supporters at home remembered Brazil’s 4-1 victory for the “King of Football” and sent banners and signs well wishes.
For example, some used the official World Cup fan festival on Copacabana. According to the Brazilian news portal “G1”, 25,000 fans came together on the world-famous beach. Brazil fans in Doha unveiled a banner with Pelé’s likeness after ten minutes of play. The players posed after the game with a banner showing the 82-year-old’s likeness.
