One of the world’s best footballers, Brazilian Edson Arantes do Nascimento Pele, denied reports that he had serious health problems.
He wrote on Twitter that he visited the hospital for a routine checkup and that he was in good health.
“People, I have not fainted and my health is very good. “I went to my routine examinations, which I could not have done earlier because of the pandemic,” Pele said.
Guys, I didn’t faint and I’m in very good health. I went for my routine exams, which I had not been able to do before because of the pandemic. Let them know I don’t play next Sunday! 👍🏽
