“My friends, I want to keep everyone calm and positive. I’m strong, with a lot of hope and I follow my treatment as usual. I want to thank the entire medical and nursing team for all the care I have received. I have a lot of faith in God and every message of love I receive from you all over the world keeps me full of energy. And watch Brazil in the World Cup too. Thank you so much for everything,” he wrote on Instagram.

Pele’s Instagram post was accompanied by an official medical bulletin of Albert Einstein Hospital, which stated that their patient remains stable and is responding well to the treatment with no deterioration of his condition noticed in the last 24 hours.

“Edson Arantes do Nascimento (Pele) was admitted to Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein last Tuesday (29) for a reassessment of chemotherapy therapy for the colon tumor, identified in September 2021. He is still undergoing treatment and his health status remains stable. He has also had a good response to care for the respiratory infection, with no worsening of the condition in the last 24 hours,” read the statement.

Pele is the only player to win three Football World Cups

Pele, 82, is the only player in the history of football to win three World Cups (1958, 1962 and 1970) and is one of the most successful and popular sports figures of the 20th century. He scored more than 1,200 goals in one of the most storied careers in sport, before retiring in 1977.

Pele impressed everyone from an early age and took the 1958 World Cup by storm. He was just 17 years old when he netted a hat trick in the semifinals and two more goals in the final which catapulted his career and launched the soccer dynasty of the Brazilian national team.
