Pele spent his second day in an intensive care unit Friday after being admitted to Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein Hospital on Monday with a urinary tract infection, reported Xinhua.

"He is very well, he is responding well," Flavia Carvalho said Friday.

"There is no crisis and he is not in a serious condition. He is receiving the treatment that he needs, that's all. You (media) are killing him."

A hospital statement earlier said Pele remained "under temporary kidney support, lucid and with no need of breathing support".

The three-time World Cup winner was released from the same hospital Nov 13 after undergoing surgery to remove kidney stones.

In the past decade, Pele has undergone surgery for a detached retina and a hip replacement.
