Neymar wishes ‘fighter’ Pele a quick recovery

Recife, Neymar has sent Pele his best wishes as the Brazil legend recovers from surgery to remove a tumor from his colon.

The 80-year-old underwent the procedure at Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein hospital on September 4 and doctors have not publicly stated when he might be discharged.

“Pele, I hope you recover soon and that you can continue to follow the national team,” Neymar said after Brazil’s 2-0 win over Peru in a World Cup qualifier here on Thursday.

“I trust that you can overcome this. I know that you’re a fighter.”

In a social media post on Wednesday, Pele thanked fans for their support and said he was “recovering well”.

The three-time World Cup winner has battled a series of health problems in recent years and has rarely been seen in public since undergoing hip replacement surgery in 2012.
