According to the Associated Press, local physicians have reported that Legendary Pele’s cancer has worsened, and he is presently undergoing advanced treatment for kidney and cardiac difficulties.
On Tuesday, Pele’s daughter said that the family will spend the Christmas holiday with him in the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo for “various reasons.”
Insta family, our Christmas at home has been suspended. We decided with the doctors that, for various reasons, it would be better for us to stay here with all the care that this new family at Einstein gives us!!
We, as always, thank you for all the love you show us here in Brazil as well as around the world!
Your love for him and your stories and prayers are a HUGE comfort because we know we are not alone.
We are going to turn this room into a Sambódromo(just kidding), we will even make caipirinhas (not kidding!!).

Pele, who won the World Cup in 1958, 1962, and 1970, is widely regarded as the greatest soccer player of all time.
Recently, there have been contradictory rumours about his health, with Kely denying last month that the Brazilian legend was facing issues during his chemotherapy treatment.
Get well soon, Pele.
