“Fortunately I’m used to celebrating great victories alongside you,” Pele wrote on his Instagram. “I will face this match with a smile on my face, a lot of optimism and joy for living surrounded by the love of my family and friends.”

Pele was in the hospital for one month, which featured some time in intensive care and “semi-intensive care” before he underwent chemotherapy from his home. During the entire process, Pele updated his fans on his progress on his Instagram.

Pele, who is considered to be one of the greatest soccer players of all time, is the only male soccer player to win three World Cups (1958, 1962, 1970). He led Brazil to its first World Cup title back in 1958.
