Pele's daughter shares emotional update as football icon remains in hospital

Pele's daughter, Kely Nascimento, has posted an emotional update on her father's health, sharing an image of the two of them together in the hospital and writing that they will spend "one more night together."

The 82-year-old football legend has been hospitalized since November 29 with a respiratory infection and to undergo chemotherapy treatment for colon cancer.

Nascimento confirmed earlier this week that Pele would have to spend Christmas in the hospital, and has thanked fans for their support and well wishes.

Pele had also contracted COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated, and his chemotherapy had made him more susceptible to a lung infection.

The football world has been closely following Pele's condition and has sent messages of support.
