“Pele is feeling better, and his life threatens nothing”, – said on Thursday evening, the personal assistant to the legendary football player, Jose Fornos Rodrigues. It was previously reported that the triple world champion is in critical condition in intensive care. However, Fornos said that Pele was transferred not to the intensive care unit and in a specialized chamber for better care and to protect him from the large number of visitors. He also stated that the football legend may be discharged from hospital after 8-10 days.
Pele was hospitalized on Monday in connection with a urinary tract infection, and he had to undergo treatment with antibiotics. Two weeks ago, Pele has been admitted to the hospital for removal of kidney stones.
