Pelé’s daughter posts emotional picture with father in hospital

As soccer legend Pelé’s health has reportedly worsened, one of his daughters took to social media to post an emotional tribute.

Kely Nascimento, who has been keeping the world updated with regular social media posts on her father’s condition, shared a touching photo Friday of herself hugging Pelé in his hospital bed in Sao Paulo, Brazil. 

The caption, written in Portuguese, reads: ‘We continue to be here, in the fight and in faith. One more night together.’

A statement from Albert Einstein hospital Wednesday said Pelé’s cancer has advanced, and he is under ‘elevated care’ related to ‘kidney and cardiac dysfunctions.’

Pelé, 82, was hospitalized Nov. 29 to treat a respiratory infection aggravated by COVID-19. He has been undergoing chemotherapy to fight cancer after he had a tumor removed from his colon in September 2021.
