Football Legend Pele has now been rushed to the hospital for an undisclosed health problem, MySportDab reports.
Pele has been in the hospital for six days but he is not seriously sick.
According to Brazilian Newspaper Globo News, Pele is currently taking part in routine health examinations at Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital.
During the tests at the hospital, an undisclosed issue was detected.
Pele’s Manager Joe Fraga has said there was no need to panic.
‘He’s undergoing full tests/scans/colonoscopy/blood etc,’ Fraga wrote in a message to the public.
‘He can’t do it all in one day.’
This comes a few days after Pele denied reports that he had fainted.
Guys, I didn't faint and I'm in very good health. I went for my routine exams, which I had not been able to do before because of the pandemic. Let them know I don't play next Sunday! 👍🏽
