Pele: Brazil legend ‘feels so much better’ after becoming ill in Paris following Kylian Mbappe meeting

Football legend Pele has revealed he is feeling “much better” after becoming unwell in Paris this week.

The Brazilian, 78, was reportedly admitted to hospital in the French capital on Wednesday due to a urinary infection.

Pele met Kylian Mbappe earlier this week.

Pele tweeted: “Thank you for all your love! The antibiotics are working and the tests are all (ok). I feel so much better, I think I’m ready to play again!”

The three-time World Cup winner recently met up with Paris Saint-Germain strker Kylian Mbappe for a promotional campaign.

It was reported on Wednesday that Pele would be in hospital for up to two days.

Pele has struggled with health issues in recent years, pictured using a cane to aid his walking due to hip and knee problems.
