Pelé transferred to palliative care in Brazil: Reports

Dec 3, 2022

Soccer legend Pelé has been transferred to palliative care in his home country of Brazil, according to multiple reports.

The Brazilian star was transferred after his chemotherapy stopped having expected results.

Pelé was admitted into a hospital earlier this week, as he has been in a fight with colon cancer. He had the tumor removed in September 2021, and has been undergoing chemotherapy since.

His daughter, Kely Nascimento, initially said there was "no emergency" regarding her father. She added he was in the hospital to regulate his medication.
