Football legend Pele under palliative care


Reuters :
expected results as he battles colon cancer, newspaper Folha de S Paulo reported on Saturday.
Pele, 82, who is widely considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, was admitted to hospital on Tuesday to re-evaluate his cancer treatment and was later diagnosed with a respiratory infection, according to medical reports.
His manager and the Albert Einstein Hospital, in Sao Paulo, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
A medical report released on Friday said Pele had an adequate response to an antibiotic treatment and was in a stable condition "with general improvement in health status".
He had a tumour removed from his colon in September 2021 and has been receiving hospital treatment on a regular basis.
Folha de S Paulo reported that chemotherapy had been suspended and that Pele was under palliative care, and being treated only for symptoms such as pain and shortness of breathe.
The newspaper also said he had a general swelling and cardiac issues when admitted to hospital earlier this week, as previously reported by ESPN Brazil.
Pele said in an Instagram post on Thursday that he was at the hospital for a "monthly visit" and thanked his supporters for the positive messages he had received.
