Pele discharges from Hospital after long Treatment

The legendary Brazilian footballer Pele has recently been going through a treatment in Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein hospital due to a urinary tract infection but after having showed significant signs of recovery, he was discharged and during his latest interview after leaving the hospital, Pele stated that he was never afraid of death as well as going on giving thanks to all of his fans for their support and prayers.

“I wasn’t afraid of dying as I am a man with three hearts,” the three-time World Cup-winner joked, alluding to his birthplace, TresCoracoes, which means “three hearts” in Portuguese. “It was a real fright. We were at the Pele museum in Santos when I caught an infection and couldn’t attend an autograph signing session.

“But thank God I am well, I’m better now,” he said, thanking the many well-wishers from around the world who had passed on their regards during the past two weeks.I was very touched to receive messages from China, Pakistan, countries across Europe. I didn’t know so many people were keeping abreast of my situation.

Pele was hospitalized on November 24 and from there on out he started taking antibiotics as a way to fight the urinary tract infection that was later discovered to be affecting the 3 times World Cup winner.

The former star of the Brazilian national football team who managed to score 1281 goals in 1363 appearances during his entire career has faced adversity in his lifetime and during his time performing for the New York Cosmos in the 1970’s he sustained a rib injury which forced the Brazilian on having his kidney removed.

The urinary tract infection that has been affecting Pele recently, forced the Brazilian attacker on having to remain in the hospital for 2 weeks with antibiotics and treatments being given to Pele and it has worked out for the 74 year old icon as he completely recovered.
