Pele discharged from hospital for the third time in a year

Brazilian legend Pele has been discharged from Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein one week after being admitted for back surgery.
The 74-year-old underwent a successful operation in Sao Paulo to correct a trapped nerve which had left him with pain in his legs.

It was the third time in a year that the three-time World Cup winner has needed medical treatment after suffering a urinary infection following a bout of kidney stones, while a prostate condition required surgery back in May.

The most decorated player in World Cup history and a two-time Copa Libertadores champion with Santos, Pele is said to be in good spirits and will continue his recovery at home.

Pele led Brazil to World Cup glory in 1958, 1962 and 1970 and his country’s all-time leading scorer with 77 goals from 92 internationals.
