Pele has been hospitalized as scheduled during treatment for a colon tumor and the Brazilian soccer great will be home in time to spend Christmas with his family, his daughter Kely Nascimento said.

Three-time World Cup champion Pele, who was admitted to Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein Hospital on Wednesday, underwent a lumpectomy in September and was in care for nearly a month.

At the time, the hospital said the 81-year-old would need chemotherapy.

“In two or three days he’ll be back home to enjoy Christmas,” his daughter said on Instagram. “This is not a surprise. It is scheduled and is part of the treatment. “

Regarded as one of the all-time greats, Pele has suffered from a series of health problems in recent years. Hip surgery left him with recurrent pain and he is now unable to walk without assistance.

He was upbeat in videos taken during his recovery in September and October, and he said on Twitter last month that he was feeling better.
