Three-time World Cup winner with Brazil, Pele has been shifted to the palliative care, which is meant for patients with potentially life-threatening diseases or conditions and end-of-life care, at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
According to reports from Brazilian publication Folha de S.Paulo, the 82-year-old was unresponsive to chemotherapy in his treatment of bowel cancer. The reports further suggested that Pele won’t be subjected to invasive tests or treatment.
Pele had been hospitalised last Tuesday to re-evaluate his cancer treatment.
