Nightmarish news has flown in from Brazil for the King of Football – Football World – Others

The health condition of the Brazilian legend Pele has deteriorated and entered a phase that does not inspire hope, the country’s media reports worryingly.

Just a few weeks ago, the newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo reported that the King of Football was no longer responding to chemotherapy and had entered palliative care, although this information was later denied.

Pele is suffering from bowel cancer, which was discovered last year and was hospitalized at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo due to an inflammatory process. His health condition has deteriorated, and the medical facility specified that the legend suffers from kidney and heart failure.

“Admitted since November 29 for re-evaluation of chemotherapeutic therapy for colon tumor and treatment of respiratory infection, Edson Arantes do Nascimento shows progression of oncological disease and requires greater attention related to renal and cardiac dysfunctions. The patient remains hospitalized under the necessary care of the medical team,” the hospital announced.

Earlier in the day, Kelly Nascimento, one of Pele’s daughters, shared in a post that the family’s Christmas would be celebrated with her father in the hospital.

“Our Christmas at home is on hold. We decided with the doctors that for various reasons it would be better to stay right here, with all the care that this new Einstein family is giving us,” Kelly Nascimenti wrote.
