The former Brazilian striker Edson Arantes do Nascimento ‘Pelé’ He continued this Tuesday with his physiotherapy sessions at the hospital, where he is admitted after going through the operating room to remove a tumor in the colon.
The triple world champion (1958, 1962 and 1970) shared a new video on his social networks, in which, in a good mood, he is seen exercising his arms and legs by pedaling.
“Pedaling like this, I will soon return to Santos”, joked the former striker, referring to the team that elevated him and where he spent 18 years of his successful sports career, between 1956 and 1974.

The former striker underwent surgery on September 4 to remove that tumor and spent several days in the Intensive Care Unit, where he slowly recovered.
