Football – Pele stable after surgery

Brazilian great Pele is recovering in a Sao Paulo hospital after undergoing surgery on a prostate condition.

Brazilian great Pele is recovering in a Sao Paulo hospital after undergoing surgery on a prostate condition.

The 74-year-old was operated on after being admitted to the Albert Einstein Hospital on Tuesday, having also been treated at the same hospital in November.

A medical statement quoted on the Globoesporte website read: “Edson Arantes do Nascimento (Pele) is in hospital after he underwent a surgical procedure of transurethral resection of the prostate.

“His condition is stable and he is in a room at the hospital.”

According to the statement, Pele’s condition is being monitored by doctors Gustavo Caserta Lemos and Fabio Nasri.

However, it does not say when the three-time World Cup winner might be discharged.

Pele was also treated at the Albert Einstein Hospital late last year after being diagnosed with a urinary tract infection that stemmed from a November 13 operation to remove kidney stones.

He only has one kidney, having had one removed towards the end of his playing career.
