The 82-year-old football star Pele from Brazil passed away late on Thursday.
Pele, a legendary player on the Brazilian football team, passed away late on Thursday. Through social media, his daughter, Kelly Nascimento, posted a notice of his passing. Pele was originally fighting stomach cancer, which eventually became the reason for his demise. On November 29, he was admitted to So Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital.
Chemotherapy was used to treat him, but he showed little improvement. However, he was then given painkillers, and the treatment was discontinued. Additionally, he had heart and kidney issues. Thus, following Pele’s passing, the Brazilian government proclaimed three days of national mourning.
Pele was taken into the hospital for a regular examination, but as time went on, his health drastically worsened, and eventually, the hospital had to proclaim him dead. Peles struggled with both cancer and heart issues. Thus, moreover, he was not responding to treatments for his cancer. Therefore, the doctor also expressed worry because of this. The tumor in his intestines was removed in September 2021. He then got treatment after that.
Pele had already had many checkups before being admitted to the hospital. Thus, Pele just shared a picture on his Instagram account during the start of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He expressed his gratitude to his supporters.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento was Pelé’s official designation. Nick has also given the names Deco, Pele, and the Black Pearl. On October 23, 1940, Pele was born in the land of Brazil.
Among the best players in football history was Pele, who helped Brazil win three World Cups. In the years 1958, 1962, and 1970, he guided Brazil to three World Cup victories. Thus, he competed in four World Cups. Their team won the championship three times in a row. In 1971, he left the Brazilian national team.
