Brazilian football legend Pele has reportedly been re-admitted to hospital after undergoing prostate surgery two months ago.

According to reports, the 74-year-old underwent surgery at the Albert Einstein hospital to fix discomfort in his back as he was suffering from a trapped nerve.

The three-time World Cup winner was treated for a urinary infection last year after having kidney stones removed, the BBC reported.

Pele won three World Cups as a player and has been named Football Player of the Century by FIFA, Athlete of the Century by the International Olympic Committee, and a national treasure by Brazil's government.
