Brazilian legend Pele put to end-of-life care system

Former Brazilian football star Pele has been moved to end-of-life care due to chemotherapy treatment no longer having the expected results to treat him for colon cancer, according to a report.

The Folha de S. Paulo newspaper claims that chemotherapy treatment has now been suspended for the 82-year-old, who is widely viewed as the greatest footballer of all time.

Pele was admitted to hospital this week to re-evaluate his cancer treatment and was later diagnosed with a respiratory infection as confirmed by medical reports.

On Friday, a medical report said that Pele, who is being treated at the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo, responded adequately to an antibiotic treatment “with general improvement in health status.”
