SAO PAULO (AP) – A Brazilian hospital says Pele has been discharged after undergoing surgery to remove kidney stones.

A statement from the Albert Einstein hospital said that the retired football player left on Saturday. It offered no other information.

The 74-year-old Pele was hospitalised Wednesday evening after cancelling his appearance at an event at the Pele Museum in the coastal city of Santos because of stomach pain.

He is widely regarded to be among the greatest football players of all time.
