FAKE DEATH RUMOURS: Brazilian legendary footballer, Pele, isn't dead, but got moved to palliative care in hospital as he continues to battle with bowel cancer

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Brazilian legendary footballer, Pele, isn't dead, but got moved to palliative care in hospital as he continues to battle with bowel cancer. 

Pele has been moved to palliative care in hospital, according to reports in Brazil.

The aim of such treatment is to prevent and relieve suffering for those patients who are facing life-threatening illness.

Also known as 'end of life care', it is for people believed to be in the last months or years of their lives and also provides support to their families.

The NHS website says: 'If you have an illness that cannot be cured, palliative care makes you as comfortable as possible by managing your pain and other distressing symptoms.

'It also involved psychological, social and spiritual support for you and your family or carers.

'Palliative care is available when you first learn you have a life-limiting (terminal) illness. You might be able to receive palliative care while you are still receiving other therapies to treat your conditions.

'End of life care is a form of palliative care you receive when you're close to the end of life.'


Pele recorded a video for Instagram on his 82nd birthday back on October 23 and accompanied it with the message: 'On my birthday, I just want to express my gratitude. Life is good. Turning 82 with my family, in good health, is the best gift. Thank you for everything I have received.' 

The Thursday update from the hospital had said Pele was in a 'stable condition' and 'in full control of vital functions' having not been admitted to an Intensive Care United [ICU].


A statement issued to the Brazilian media said: 'After medical evaluation, the patient was taken to a common room, without the need for hospitalisation in a semi-intensive unit or ICU.

'The former player is in full control of vital function and [in a] stable clinical condition.'

The hospital confirmed Pele had been taken into hospital 'for a reassessment of the chemotherapy treatment of the colon tumour identified in September 2021.'

Pelé has been moved to end-of-life palliative care after he stopped responding to chemotherapy. The only footballer in history to win 3 World Cups, and an icon of the game at the level of Muhammad Ali in boxing. So sad. Pele, the Brazil football legend, has been moved to end-of-life care in hospital in his home country, a Brazilian news outlet has reported.

Pele, 82, has been moved to palliative care at the Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein in São Paulo, according to Folhua, the Brazilian daily newspaper. He has been undergoing treatment for bowel cancer since last September.

The former footballer was admitted to hospital on Tuesday, with what is believed to be a general swelling and cardiac issues. On Thursday he was reported to be in a stable condition in hospital, with no cause for alarm.

However, Folhua de São Paulo said Pele was no longer responding to the chemotherapy treatment he has been undergoing to treat his bowel cancer. His treatment has now been suspended and he is receiving measures to relieve pain, the report added.

Pele, whose full name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento, is regarded by many as the greatest footballer of all time, having won three World Cups, scoring 77 goals in 92 appearances for Brazil.

Pele also shared a photo of a “get well soon” message projected onto a building in Qatar. He said: “Friends, I am at the hospital making my monthly visit. It’s always nice to receive positive messages like this. Thanks to Qatar for this tribute, and to everyone who sends me good vibes!”

He was admitted into the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Tuesday suffering from 'general swelling' and 'heart failure'.

An update on Thursday said the three-time World Cup winner was in a 'stable' condition in the hospital with his daughter Kely insisting there was 'no cause for alarm'.

However, a report by Folha de Sao Paulo on Saturday, said Pele isn't responding any longer to the chemotherapy treatment he has been undergoing since last September to treat his bowel cancer.

They said he is now in palliative care and won't be subjected to invasive tests or treatment. Palliative care is for patients with potentially life-threatening diseases or conditions and end-of-life care.. 
Pele - whose full name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento - is regarded by many as the greatest footballer of all time.

He won three World Cups with Brazil in 1958, 1962 and 1970, and scored 643 goals in 659 official matches for the Brazilian club Santos. He scored 77 times in 92 games for his country's national team.

Social media was flooded with messages from footballers past and present wishing Pele a speedy recovery.

The France international forward Kylian Mbappe, tweeted 'pray for the King'.

Pele's former club Santos wrote: 'It's the whole world wishing you well, King Pele.'

The current Brazil star Vinicius Jr posted pictured fan banners from Friday's World Cup match against Cameroon and said: 'Força rei' [literally, 'strength to the King'].

Speaking at the start of the BBC's coverage of the Netherlands vs United States World Cup game, German legend Jurgen Klinsmann said of Pele: 'He is always nice to every fan walking up to him and obviously he is Pele, the outstanding personality of world football.
