Sao Paulo/UNI: Former Brazilian football star Pele, three-time World Cup champion, died at the age of 82 in a hospital in Sao Paulo, victim of colon cancer, his doctors officially reported.

The Athlete of the Century had been hospitalized since November 29 at the Albert Einstein hospital, in Sao Paulo.

The hospitalisation took place due to a respiratory infection after he contracted Covid-19 and for the reassessment of the treatment of colon cancer.

On Thursday afternoon, the hospital announced the death of "the King".

The report of the Israelita Albert Einstein Hospital said, "the Hospital confirms with regret the death of Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Pele, today December 29, 2022, at 3:27 p.m., due to the failure of multiple organs, as a result of the progression of colon cancer associated with your previous medical condition."

Israelita Albert Einstein Hospital sympathizes with the family and everyone who suffers from the loss of our dear King of Football, added the report.
