Pelé underwent surgery
The legendary Brazilian football player Pelé announced on his Instagram that he underwent surgery to remove a colon tumor.
“I thank God for making me feel as good as he did for allowing Dr. Fabio and Dr. Miguel to take care of my health. I had surgery last Saturday to remove a suspicious tumor in my right colon. “The tumor was found during tests I mentioned last week.” wrote Pelé.
It should be mentioned that last week Pele was hospitalized in a private clinic in Sao Paulo for a planned examination. His representatives said that the 80-year-old “football king” had health problems. They did not specify what the issues were.
