Brazilian football legend Pele has been released from a Paris hospital after being treated for a urinary infection. 

The 78-year-old soccer great who was rushed to the hospital last Wednesday after an event with French footballer, Kylian Mbappe, said in a statement on Monday night that he will be heading back home in Brazil and is “ready to work again” after a five-day stay at the American Hospital of Paris.

“I suffered from a severe urinary infection that demanded medical and surgical assistance as an emergency,” the three-time World Cup winner said.

Before he was released, the legendary footballer was pictured with compatriot and PSG forward Neymar in the hospital.
