Brazilian football legend Pele expressed that his health condition improved slightly, and that he still needed treatment for several more days, stressing that he was taking the opportunity of his presence in the hospital to rest and also talk with his family.
Pele said, through his official account on Instagram: “My friends .. with each passing day I feel a little better, I am looking forward to playing again, but I am still being treated for a few more days, and while I am here, I take the opportunity to talk a lot with my family and to rest, thanks again.” For all the loving messages and we’ll be together again soon.”

Pele reassured his fans this week of his health from inside the hospital and sent a message of encouragement through social networks to the Brazilian singer Roberto Carlos, who lost one of his sons last Wednesday due to cancer..
In his message, Pele said: “I am recovering well, but I want to send all my affection, love and prayers to my close friend Roberto Carlos. I hope that God will comfort his heart and surround him with love and light.”
