Pelé will remain hospitalized for a respiratory infection

SAO PAULO (AP) – Pelé has a respiratory infection and will remain in the hospital where he has been since Tuesday.

Edson Arantes do Nascimento, 82, better known as Pelé, is being treated with antibiotics, Albert Einstein Hospital said in a statement on Friday.

“His response has been adequate and the patient, who remains in a normal bedroom, is stable, with a general improvement in his health,” added the hospital.

Pele thanked fans in an Instagram post Thursday afternoon for the well wishes he has received in his fight against cancer. He had a colon tumor removed in September 2021 and has been undergoing chemotherapy ever since.

Neither the hospital nor his family have said whether the ex-footballer’s cancer has spread to other organs. He has consulted the hospital every month.

The hospital confirmed on Friday that the three-time World Cup winner has had to adjust his chemotherapy medication.
