Pelé assures that he “recovers well” after being operated on for a tumor in the colon

Former Brazilian soccer player Edson Arantes do Nascismento ‘Pelé’ stated that he is “recovering well” from the surgery he underwent for the removal last Saturday of a “suspicious” tumor in the colon.

Pelé, 80, has been admitted for nine days at the Albert Einstein hospital in the capital of São Paulo after undergoing surgery to remove the tumor and is recovering in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

The tumor was identified during routine examinations carried out last week and which, according to Pelé himself, had been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has kept him semi-confined in his home on the São Paulo coast.

In addition to updating his health status, “o rei” sent a message of encouragement on his social networks to the Brazilian singer Roberto Carlos, who on Wednesday lost one of his children to cancer.

«I am recovering well, but today I want to send all my affection, love and prayers to my great friend Roberto Carlos. I hope that God comforts his heart and that he is surrounded by love and light, “said the former footballer on Thursday night on his social networks. EFE (HN)
