Doctor's Issue Disturbing News About Football Hero Pele, Ahead of This Festive Season.

Doctors at Albert Einstein hospital, in Sao Paulo, issued disturbing news about Pele's health condition a few days before Christmas.

Edson Arantes Do Nascimento, famously known as Pele, a football hero and legend is said to spend this Christmas in his hospital bed because his condition has worsened, and his family think it is the best thing to do.

Doctors say that colon cancer, the condition Pele is suffering has rendered his kidney and heart dysfunctional hence worsening his health.

The 3 times world cup winner will spend his Christmas in the hospital bed as he continues to receive care as well as chemotherapy.

The colon tumour was removed late last year, in September 2021, and his progress is rather not improving much since his renal and cardiac functions are dysfunctional.

His daughter Nely Nascimento confirmed through her twitter account that his father will remain in Albert Einstein hospital over Christmas to continue receiving therapy.

This news has left many fans worried about his prognosis, with many praying Pele to pull through this tough condition as doctors attend to him and offer the best care available.

The report comes a week after Mahajohvic succumbs to leukaemia.
