Pele discharged after two days in Hospital

World football icon Pele (81) was discharged from the Sao Paulo clinic on Thursday after undergoing two days of treatment for cancer.

Pele, who had a colon tumor removed last year, has since been undergoing chemotherapy.

“He was admitted to hospital on Wednesday and was discharged on Thursday and is in a clinically stable condition,” said the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo.

The former Santos and New York Cosmos player was diagnosed with a tumor in the intestine, one in the liver and the beginning of another in a lung, and would undergo new exams to find other possible cancer spots.

He was hospitalized again last month for chemotherapy sessions and discharged on 23 December 2021.
