RIO DE JANEIRO: Football legend Pele has moved to reassure fans that he is feeling fine after being taken to hospital in Brazil. The 80-year-old's wellbeing was the subject of speculation earlier on Tuesday after it was revealed he had been admitted to the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo.

"Guys, I didn't faint and I'm in very good health. I went for my routine exams, which I had not been able to do before because of the pandemic," Pele said on Twitter. The three-time World Cup winner has rarely been seen in public since undergoing hip replacement surgery in 2012, Xinhua reports. He has since battled a series of prostate and kidney problems that have often required treatment in hospital.

Pele scored a world record tally of 1,281 goals in a 1,363-match professional career that spanned 21 years. He was capped 91 times for Brazil and scored 77 international goals. (IANS)
