After leaving hospital, Pele says ‘I want to play 90 minutes’

Brazilian and world football legend, Edsons Arantes Do Nasimentos popularly called Pele says he feels ready for “90 minutes plus extra time” after leaving intensive care.

The 80-year-old had surgery to remove a tumour from his colon at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo.

The three-time World Cup winner has been having treatment at the hospital since 31 August after the tumour was detected in routine tests.

“I have already left the ICU and I am in my room,” he said in a post on Instagram thanking fans for support.

“I continue every day happier, with a lot of disposition to play 90 minutes, plus extra time. We will be together soon.”
