Pele was readmitted for further treatment earlier this week, but his family shared positive news – urging fans to “calm down” and saying treatment was “planned”.

Flavia Kurtz Nascimento – who shares a picture of her posing with the beaming father Pele – has given her contribution a title: “My people !!!

“Last visit of the year to Einstein …

“To continue the treatment, with check-ups and chemo …

“Thanks to this wonderful team … my father just keeps developing !!!

“Thank you for the affection everyone … but Daddy is great.”

Another of Pele’s daughters, Kely Nascimento, posted her sister’s picture again – and provided a positive update herself.

She wrote, “I appreciate all the affection we have received from all of you !!

“This photo was taken 10 minutes ago on @hosp_einstein, where my father was finishing a procedure that had been planned for months.

“My sister @flavia_kurtz_fisioterapiahe caresses him for me!

“He’s going home in two or three days to enjoy Christmas.

“That wasn’t a surprise. It was already planned and is part of the treatment.

“All my gratitude, always.”

In September, three-time world champion Pele confirmed that he must continue to undergo chemotherapy.

The tumor was discovered during routine check-ups in August.
