The daughter of Brazil football legend Pele has said her father is "super well" and responding positively to treatment for an infection.
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.
