 Football legend Pele recovering well after ‘little step back’, says daughter

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) — Pele is recovering well after surgery to remove a tumor from his colon, his daughter said on Friday.    

 Kely Nascimento took to social media to post a photograph with her father sitting up in a hospital bed after reports circulated that the 80-year-old was readmitted to intensive care.    

 “I don’t know what is going on with the rumors out there but my DMs are booming,” Nascimento wrote.    

 “There’s already a lot of anxiety roaming the world these days and we don’t want to be the reason for more. This photo was taken just now. He is wearing a vest because … the cold in Sao Paulo bothers him.    

 “He is recovering well and within normal range. Promise! Yesterday he was tired and took a little step back. Today he took two forwards!”    
 Pele underwent surgery at Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein hospital on September 4 after the tumor was found during routine tests. He was moved from intensive care to a private room on Tuesday.    

 The three-time World Cup winner has battled a series of health problems over the past decade, including complications related to hip replacement surgery as well as kidney and prostate conditions.
