Pele’s sister, Maria Lucia do Nascimento cares for Celeste, who recently turned 100-year-old and has not been informed about her son’s passing.

The matriarch of Pele’s family has not yet been informed that her famed footballer son lost his battle with colon cancer.

Maria stated in a local program that although they speak, she is unaware of the circumstances. She is immersed in her universe.

She continued, “She opens her eyes when I mention his name and say, “We’re going to pray for him,” but she is unaware of what I’m saying.” The three-time World Cup champion is known by his family as Dico, a nickname he was given as a youngster.

In September 2021, Pelé had a colon tumor removed. Whether the disease had spread to other organs has not been disclosed by either his family or the hospital.
