Pele returns to hospital

World soccer legend Pele returned to hospital on Sunday for the latest round of treatment on a colon tumor.

Pele had surgery to remove a tumor in September 2021 and has been undergoing treatment at a clinic in Sao Paulo on a regular basis since.

The former Santos and New York Cosmos posted a picture on Instagram of him smiling alongside a message that treated his latest hospitalization as routine.

“Friends, as I have been doing monthly, I am going to the hospital to continue my treatment,” the three-time World Cup winner wrote.

“I’ve already ordered a big TV and popcorn so I can watch the Super Bowl later. I will watch the match even though my friend @tombrady is not playing. Thanks for all the loving messages.”

The 81-year-old has suffered from a series of health issues in recent years, including hip surgery that left him with recurring pain and trouble walking unaided.
