Pele is Recovering in Hospital After Undergoing Prostate Surgery

Football legend Pele is recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery to treat prostate hyperplasia. The 74-year-old is in a stable condition at Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein hospital.

The hospital statement said, "Doctors had performed a transurethral resection of the prostate, an operation that involves cutting away a section of the gland."

It is the second time in less than six months that Pele has been hospitalized. The three-time World Cup winner was treated for a urinary tract infection in November after having kidney stones removed.
