The state of health of the Brazilian idol returned to concern in the last week. However, the hospital’s medical bulletins and publications by the children and Pelé himself on social networks reassured about the situation. The three-time world champion even wished the Brazilian team good luck before the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar and said he would watch the match against South Korea directly from the hospital — the UOL followed the King and accompanied the duel at the gatehouse.
