Pele: Brazil legend ‘well’ in hospital after prostate surgery


Brazil legend Pele is expected to be released from hospital on Saturday after undergoing prostate surgery, says the Sao Paulo hospital treating him.
The 74-year-old was admitted to hospital for the second time in six months earlier this week.
Following the procedure, the Albert Einstein Hospital said the three-time World Cup winner was recuperating well.
He was treated in hospital for a urinary infection in November 2014 after having kidney stones removed.
An aide told AFP news agency on Friday that Pele could be out of hospital “within days”.
Friend and advisor Jose Fornos Rodrigues said: “Everything is going well with Pele; he is resting.
“It was a very simple procedure. He will be released within a couple of days.”
