Pelé’s daughter, Celeste Nascimento, showed on her account on Instagram that Pelé is smiling while recovering in the hospital from a kidney problem.
“Facetime with the most beautiful man of this world! Love you more than ALL #tochegando “wrote the girl, who lives in the United States and made a videoconference by phone with her father.
The ex-football player (soccer) follows with clinical improvement and is “excited” while receiving semi-intensive care in a hospital in the south of São Paulo, according to the medical bulletin released on Thursday.
Pele came to receive intensive treatment and undergo hemodialysis, but this treatment was stopped last weekend. The former player, who defended Santos, New York Cosmos and the Brazilian team, has only one kidney, after removing the other in the 1970s.
