Pele undergoes hip operation

Legendary Brazilian footballer Pele underwent a successful hip operation in Sao Paulo on Tuesday, a spokesperson for the three-time World Cup winner told the Globo Esporte website.

"Everything went well, it was a very simple operation. He will probably leave tomorrow (Wednesday)," said Pele's spokesman, Jose Fornos.

The 72-year-old, an honorary ambassador for the 2014 World Cup being hosted by Brazil, had been admitted to the Albert Einstein hospital, which did not publish any more information at the request of Pele's family.
