The Brazilian soccer star, Pelé, left the intensive care unit of the Albert Einstein Hospital, in São Paulo, after undergoing surgery in which a colon tumor was removed, on September 4.
At 80, the Brazilian “does not feel pain and is in a good mood and will be transferred to a normal room in one or two days and then he will go home,” his daughter had published days ago.
“My father is strong and stubborn, with the support and care of the brilliant hospital team and all the love, energy and light that the world is sending, he will get through this!”
Pelé himself published a message a few days ago to thank the expressions of affection and reassure the fans about his state of health, noting: “My friends, thank you very much for the messages of affection. I thank God for feeling very good. I had surgery to remove a tumor in the colon. I am used to celebrating great victories and I will face this match with a smile on my face, optimism and joy for living surrounded by the love of my family and all of you. “
