“Dad… my strength is yours,” Pele’s son said.

The three times Brazilian World Cup champion Pele was admitted to the hospital on November 29 after being diagnosed with a respiratory infection before a re-evaluation of chemotherapy treatment over colon cancer was carried out in September 2021.

The former Santos maestro, Pele had contracted Covid-19, despite being vaccinated “with all doses” according to Kely.

And because his chemotherapy had made him weak, the 82-year-old Brazilian contracted a lung infection.

Pele’s health condition has become a great concern to football fans across the world, most especially Brazilians, during Brazil’s World Cup pursuit in Qatar.
