Former Brazilian soccer player Edson Arantes do Nascismento, 'Pelé', underwent surgery last Saturday to remove a tumor in his colon and remains in a hospital in Sao Paulo, according to the legendary athlete published on social networks.

The king of soccer Pelé has been hospitalized for six days in Sao Paulo after some health problems were discovered during routine examinations, local media reported on Monday.

The three-time world champion has been admitted to the Albert Einstein hospital, where he is usually treated, since August 31, according to

That day, the Brazilian legend wrote a message on his social networks in which he said he was "in very good health", denying rumors that he had fainted.

"I went to have my routine exams, which I had not been able to do before due to the pandemic," said 'O Rei', without indicating whether he had been hospitalized.

However, in the medical check-ups a problem was detected, undisclosed, and he was hospitalized.

"When the doctors finish all the exams, we will issue a statement," Pele's press adviser told AFP.

Asked about the health and hospitalization of the ex-footballer, Albert Einstein said "he had no information."
