Pele 'recovering satisfactorily' after surgery to remove tumor

Pele 'recovering satisfactorily' after surgery to remove tumor

Brazilian football legend Pele remains in intensive care after surgery to remove a tumor from his colon, the medical team treating him said late on Friday.

The 80-year-old underwent the procedure at Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein hospital on September 4 after the tumor was found during routine tests.

"The patient Edson Arantes do Nascimento has been recovering satisfactorily, is conscious, actively talking and maintaining his vital signs in normality," the hospital said in a medical bulletin.

Earlier, the three-time World Cup winner took to social media to thank fans for their support and reassure them that he was recuperating.

"My friends, with each passing day I feel a little better," he said on Instagram. "I'm going to take a few more days to recover. While I'm here, I'm taking the opportunity to talk a lot with my family and to rest."

Pele has battled a series of health problems in recent years and has rarely been seen in public since undergoing hip replacement surgery in 2012.
