Brazil soccer legend Pele says 'much better' after French hospital stay

DINARD, France - Brazil soccer great Pele said on Friday he was feeling "so much better" after receiving treatment in a French hospital for a urinary infection.

"Thank you for all your love! The antibiotics are working and the tests are all (good). I feel so much better, I think I am ready to play again," Pele wrote on Twitter.

The 78-year-old was admitted to hospital late on Tuesday as a precaution after attending an event in the French capital with France's World Cup winning youngster Kylian Mbappe.
