Pele feeling 'much better' after treatment

Football legend Pele said Friday he was feeling "much better" after receiving hospital treatment in Paris for a urinary infection. "The anti-biotics are working... I feel so much better," the 78-year-old Brazilian said on his official Twitter account. The three-time World Cup winner was admitted to a Paris hospital on Wednesday after appearing at a promotional event with France striker Kylian Mbappe. Previously, Pele had admitted to not feeling robust enough to light the flame at the opening ceremony of the 2016 Rio Olympics. Before that, he spent time in intensive care in Brazil in late 2014 following a kidney complaint.
