Rio de Janeiro: Brazilian football legend Pele has been admitted to a hospital due to a stomach complaint.
The 74-year-old cancelled a scheduled appearance at the Pele Museum in the coastal city of Santos before being taken to Sao Paulo's Albert Einstein hospital by ambulance Wednesday, Xinhua quoted O Globo as saying.
His condition is not thought to be serious but a hospital spokesperson said the former Selecao No.10 was undergoing a series of tests to determine the cause of the ailment.
It is not the first time that Pele has suffered health problems.
In 2004, the three-time World Cup winner underwent emergency eye surgery for a detached retina and in 2012 he had a hip replacement.
