Pele, the legendary Brazilian footballer, has been released from the hospital after undergoing treatment for a tumor and a urinary tract infection.
Doctors discovered a urinary tract infection eight days after he was admitted, extending his stay.
Pele, on the other hand, is currently in a “stable clinical condition,” according to the hospital.
He will continue therapy for the tumor, which was discovered in September during normal examinations.
Pele had prostate surgery in 2015 after being admitted to the hospital for the second time in six months, and he was rushed to the hospital again in 2019 for a urinary infection.
In December, he was readmitted for tumor treatment but was released just before Christmas.
With 77 goals in 92 appearances, Brazil’s all-time leading scorer is one of only four players to have scored in four World Cup competitions.
