Legendary Brazilian soccer player Pele commented on his state of health:
“Friends, I want everyone to be calm and positive. I am strong, with great hope, and I am still following my treatment. I want to thank the entire team of doctors and nurses for all the help I received. I have great faith in God and every message of love I receive from you around the world fills me with energy. And watch Brazil at the World Cup too! Thank you so much for everything.”
Note that the 82-year-old Brazilian was transferred to palliative care, as the doctors stopped the course of chemotherapy, as the body no longer responds to it. However, the press service of the hospital did not confirm this.
On Friday, December 2, it became known that Pele was diagnosed with a respiratory infection.
