A three-time World Cup winner, Pele was admitted to hospital earlier this month after a tumor in his right colon was found during routine tests. The tumor was removed and sent for analysis.

Pele has suffered from hip problems for years and cannot walk unaided. His public appearances were already being cut before the COVID-19 pandemic and since then he has made few unnecessary forays outside his house near Santos.
