Pele is Brazil’s all-time leading scorer and is one of only four players to score in four different World Cup tournaments

Brazilian soccer legend Pele underwent surgery to remove a polyp from his colon.

After it was reported that the 80-year-old had been in hospital for six days, he said on social media on Monday that he underwent surgery to remove a “disturbing cluster” last Saturday.

“Fortunately, I am used to celebrating great victories by your side,” said the three-time World Cup winner.

“I will face this match with a smile on my face, and a lot of optimism and joy in life,” he added.
