Brazilian football great Pele was hospitalised in Paris with a strong fever but his condition is not life-threatening and he should be released “within a couple of days,” one of his long-time friends said on Wednesday. Football legend Pele was taken to a Paris hospital as a precaution on Wednesday after suffering from an “infection” but is “doing well”, according to members of his entourage.
The 78-year-old Brazilian three-time World Cup winner was being treated for “a light fever” prior to the long flight back to his home country, the sources told AFP, confirming earlier reports by French radio station RMC.
“Everything is under control. Everything’s fine.” Pele was admitted late on Tuesday as a precaution after attending an event in the French capital with France’s World Cup winning youngster Kylian Mbappe.
