- Reports say Pelé readmitted due to acid reflux
- Doctors and daughter insists he is in stable condition
Pelé is said to be recovering following reports he had re-entered an intensive care unit at São Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital in an apparent deterioration of the three-time World Cup winner’s health after he left the unit earlier this week.
ESPN Brasil reported on Friday that Pelé was readmitted to the ICU due to acid reflux. The 80-year-old had a colon tumour removed this month and stayed in the hospital for further monitoring.
