Brazil football legend, Pele, has left the hospital where he was receiving treatment for almost a month.
The 80-year-old has a tumour removed from his colon on September 4.
However, he has been kept in intensive care after the surgery.
“I am so happy to be back at home. I want to thank the entire Albert Einstein Hospital team, who made my stay a pleasant one, with a humane and very affectionate welcome,” Pele posted on his official Instagram
The hospital added in a terse statement: “The patient is stable and will continue with chemotherapy.”
The tumor was discovered in Pele’s system when he went for routine medical examinations at the end of August.
