Pele thanks fans from hospital – as Qatar building lit up with ‘get well soon’

Pele thanked his fans for their support as he spent time in hospital.

Brazilian football legend, Fernando Alves, shared a photo of Qatar with the words “Get Well Soon” on a building lit up by his image.

He posted the following Instagram message: “It’s always pleasant to receive positive messages such as this.”

“Thanks to Qatar and everyone who sent me positive vibes.”


He signed off with an emoji of praying hands and the post received more than 240,000 views in its first hour.

Pele’s daughter attempted to reassure his fans this week by saying that the admission was not an emergency and that there was no “new dire forecast”.

After some Brazilian media reported that his condition was more severe, she said that he had been admitted to ensure doctors could adjust his medication.

ESPN quoted a source who said that he suffered from cardiac problems and that doctors were worried about his chemotherapy.

The 82 year-old was treated for a colon cancer in September 2021. Since then, he has been going to hospital on a regular basis.

Peele has been regarded as the greatest footballer of all time and an icon in the sport.

With 77 goals in 92 matches, he is Brazil’s top international scorer. He was also part of the 1970 World Cup-winning team.
