Rio de Janeiro: Brazil football legend Pele has been discharged from hospital after back surgery.
The 74-year-old was admitted to Sao Paulo's Alberto Einstein hospital on Thursday for treatment on a trapped nerve, reported Xinhua news agency.
"(We) inform that Edson Arantes do Nascimento was discharged today. The patient left hospital at 4 p.m.," the hospital said in a statement on Monday.
