O Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein informed this Tuesday afternoon, 14, that Skin left the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and was transferred to the bedroom. Hospitalized since August 31, the King of Football was admitted to the hospital in São Paulo to perform routine tests, but was diagnosed with a tumor in the colon and had to undergo surgery. In the bulletin, the medical team communicates that the three-time world champion with the Brazilian Team presents a “stable picture” and will continue to be monitored by specialists during the recovery process.

Last Monday, Kely Nascimento DeLuca, one of the daughters of Skin, used his Instagram account to display a screenshot of a video call made with King of Football. In the publication, Kely celebrated the fact that his father is recovering well from the surgery done to remove a colon tumor. “I would like to thank you very, very much, from the bottom of my heart, for all the loving and concerned texts, DMs, zaps and emails I have received. I haven’t had time to answer them all yet, but I read it and feel embraced! He is recovering well from the surgery. He’s pain free, in a good mood (he’s a little irritated that he can only eat jelly but he’ll get over it!!). He is ready to get out of the ICU and go home soon. He’s strong and stubborn, and with the help of all of Einstein’s amazing staff, plus all the love and energy and light the world is sending, he’s out of this one!” said Kely.
