Pele has become depressed and reclusive – Son

Brazilian legend Pele has become depressed due to his poor health and inability to walk unaided, according to his son.

In an interview with Brazil’s Globo Esporte, Pele’s son Edinho says the 79-year-old is now reluctant to even leave the house following complications with his recovery from hip surgery.
“He is quite fragile,” said Edinho. “He underwent a hip replacement and did not have adequate, ideal rehabilitation. So he has this mobility problem, which has caused a kind of depression.”
Pele is widely considered one of the greatest players of all time and won three World Cups during an illustrious career that spanned more than 20 years.
“Imagine, he is the king, he was always such an imposing figure, and today he can no longer walk properly,” added Edinho.
In recent public appearances, Pele has used a wheelchair and walking frame, something Edinho says he cannot walk without.
