Pele Collapses, Hospitalised

Brazilian football legend Pele is recuperating in a hospital after collapsing from exhaustion on Thursday.

Pele was due to travel to London this weekend for a dinner held in his honour by the Football Writers Association.

The FWA in a statement said the football legend has “undergone a series of tests which appear to point to severe exhaustion.

“He is on fluids while doctors monitor his recovery. Thankfully there is no suggestion of anything more serious.”

Pele, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, is widely regarded as the greatest player of all time.

He helped his country win the 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cups and was named Fifa’s Player of the Century.
