Ailing Pele In End-Of-Life Ward

Ola Kiya, With Agency Report

Ailing football legend, Pele, ‘is moved to end-of-life care’ ward in the hospital, Daily Mail has revealed.

His body is said not to be responding to chemotherapy any longer in the fight against bowel cancer.

Reports from Brazil indicated that the 82-year-old legend, who went into hospital last week, is receiving measures to relieve pain at Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo.

The World Cup legend, whose original name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento was admitted to the hospital last Tuesday after suffering from ‘general swelling’ and ‘heart failure.’

An update on Thursday said the football icon was in a ‘stable’ condition in the hospital with his daughter, Kely, insisting there was ‘no cause for alarm.’

However, a report by Folha de Sao Paulo on Saturday said “Pele is not responding any longer to the chemotherapy treatment he has been undergoing since last September to treat his bowel cancer.”
