Brazil football legend Pele’s health condition is improving, but the soccer great is still receiving treatment for a urinary infection, says a Brazilian hospital.
Pele has been hospitalized since Monday because of a urinary infection. He had surgery to remove kidney stones on November 13.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento, aka Pele, helped Brazil win three of its five World Cups.
A legally declared national treasure in Brazil, Pele was voted ‘Athlete of the Century’ in 1999 by the world’s national Olympic committees for his accomplishments in and contributions to soccer.
