Pele given approval to light cauldron at Rio Olympics ceremony despite muscle pains

Pele's doctors have given him the go ahead to light the Olympic cauldron on Friday, but muscle pains may bar the Brazilian football great from the torch ceremony that opens the Rio de Janeiro Games.

The 75-year-old triple World Cup winner had hip surgery in December and needs a walking stick to get around.

'It all depends on the muscle pains that hinder his mobility,' a spokesperson for Pele told Reuters.
