Pelé surgery is successful

IT'S an unwanted hat-trick for Pelé, who won the World Cup three times with Brazil. His latest stay in hospital, for back surgery, is the legend's third stay in hospital in Sao Paulo in the last year. The 74-year old was treated for a urinary tract infection late last year. In May, he had surgery for a prostate problem. The good news is that the man who's regarded as the greatest footballer of all time is back home.
