Pele, the legendary Brazilian footballer, has been brought to the hospital, although his daughter has stated that there was “no emergency” involved.
Pele was rushed to Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital earlier on Wednesday, according to ESPN Brasil.
Pele’s daughter, Kely Nascimento, on the other hand, stated on Instagram that there was “no fresh terrible prophecy.”
Pele had a tumor removed from his colon in September 2021 and has since received frequent hospital care.
“There’s a lot of anxiety in the media today about my father’s health,” Nascimento added.

“He’s in the hospital adjusting his medication.”
“There is no crisis or new catastrophic forecast.” “I’ll be there for New Year’s and will upload pictures.”
ESPN Brasil also reported that the 82-year-old was experiencing cardiac troubles and that his chemotherapy treatment was not having the desired effect.
With 77 goals in 92 games, Pele is Brazil‘s all-time best scorer, and the former striker is one of only four players to have scored in four World Cup competitions.
