Pele is responding well to treatment for a respiratory infection and his health condition has not worsened over the last 24 hours, the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo said on Saturday.

The 82-year-old has been in hospital since Tuesday receiving treatment for colon cancer, having undergone surgery to remove a tumour during September 2021.

The Albert Einstein hospital said on Saturday that he is being kept in hospital for a "reassessment of chemotherapy therapy" of his colon tumour.

"He is still having treatment and remains stable," the hospital added.

Earlier on Saturday a report from Brazilian daily newspaper Folha de S.Paulo said Pele had been moved to palliative care and was only being treated for symptoms such as pain and shortness of breath.
