The health condition of Pele, the Brazilian football legend, is somewhat better than in recent days, is the official statement of the hospital where the 82-year-old Pele is, as reported by the French news agency AFP. Seven days ago, Pele was admitted to the hospital, and since then different information about his condition has been circulating.
Some also said that Pele was in a critical condition, that he was receiving palliative care, but all of this was first denied by his family members. "Pele continues improving progressively, especially the respiratory infection," his medical team said in a statement.
"He remains in a standard room, with stable vital signs, conscious and with no new complications.", the medical team that takes care of one of the best football players of all time officially announced. During the weekend, Pele sent a message via social networks, in which he wrote: "Friends, I am at the hospital making my monthly visit.
It's always nice to receive positive messages like this. Thanks to Qatar for this tribute, and to everyone who sends me good vibes!" he captioned.
"I'll be rooting for each one of you," he wrote.
"I want to inspire you, my friends... We are on this journey together. Good luck to our Brazil!" "It's hard to talk about what Pele is going through, but I wish him all the best," Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar said after the match -- in which he converted a penalty, taking him to within one goal of Pele's all-time Brazil scoring record.
"I hope he'll get well as soon as possible, and that we at least brought him some comfort with the win and the banner we dedicated to him." His younger compatriots, on the other hand, are excelling at the current world championship, where they will play against Croatia in the quarter-finals on Friday starting at 4 p.m.
Very often, Brazilian footballers send messages of support to Pele, as do Brazilian fans who follow the championship hosted by Qatar.
