“He is in exclusive palliative care. This means that chemotherapy has been suspended and that he continues to receive comfort measures to alleviate pain and shortness of breath without undergoing invasive therapies," reads the Brazilian media.

Pelé's state of health is delicate, but the doctors, however, assured this Friday that he was responding well to treatment.

After learning the news about the state of health of the soccer legend, many have been the messages of encouragement that he has received.

The most recent was the one published by the French star Kylian Mbappé in which he urged people to pray for Pelé.
