Soccer legend Pele was last night admitted to a hospital in Paris shortly after he attended a promotional event with Kylian Mbappe.
According to RMC Sport, the 78-year-old was down with strong fever and taken to hospital “as a precaution”. His condition is not believed to be life-threatening.
The 78-year-old Brazilian retired professional footballer was in Paris for a sponsor event organized by Swiss watchmaker Hublot, where he met Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe and his family.
Pele is regarded by many in the sport, including football writers, players, and fans, as the greatest football player of all time.
It is unclear at the time of this report if he has been discharged from the hospital.
