Pele recovering after hip operation

Santos and Brazil icon Pele has undergone surgery on his hip and is in good condition after the procedure in Sao Paulo, his spokesman has confirmed.

Pele, 72, went under the knife at the city's Albert Einstein Hospital, though no extra details were disclosed at the behest of the former striker's family.

"Everything went well, it was a very simple operation. He will probably leave tomorrow [Wednesday]," his spokesman Jose Fornos told Agence France-Presse.

Pele is widely considered one of the greatest players of all time having scored around 1,300 goals and won three World Cups (1958, 1962 and 1970) during a glittering career.

Boasting myriad football records, Pele saw one of them fall last weekend as Lionel Messi surpassed his total of 75 goals in a calendar year.
