Pele released from hospital after surgery
Pele has been released from hospital in Sao Paulo after undergoing surgery for the second time in six months.
The 74-year-old was treated at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo back in November for a urinary tract infection, which stemmed from an earlier procedure to remove kidney stones.
He was released in December, but the three-time World Cup winner returned to hospital this week for a minor procedure on his prostate.
However, Pele was free to go home on Saturday evening, local time, having recovered sufficiently.
