Pele, the Brazilian football legend, was hospitalized Wednesday in the suburbs of Paris because of a “urinary infection”, the day after his meeting with the prodigy of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Kylian Mbappe.
King Pelé’s health is still cause for concern. The 78-year-old Brazilian player was admitted to a hospital in the suburbs of Paris “as a precaution”, but “is well,” according to concordant sources. Pele had come to France to meet the young prodigy of PSG Kylian Mbappé. According to RMC, his state of health would not be threatened.
“He has a urinary tract infection, but everything is under control. Doctors gave him antibiotics, he will have to spend one or two days “in the hospital to recover completely, said his press service.
He was in Paris for an event sponsored by Swiss watchmaker Hublot, where he met Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe and his family.
The entourage of the player evokes an “infection”, “a little fever” and a simple measure of “precaution” before “a long trip” to return to Brazil.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known as Pelé, has appeared several times in recent years in wheelchairs and walkers. He had not been able to light the Olympic torch in Rio during the 2016 Olympics.
It is not known if he left the hospital.
