Brazilian soccer great Pele has returned to hospital for a routine checkup, his business’s manager told Reuters on Thursday, as he undergoes treatment after having a colon tumor removed last year.

Sports TV network ESPN reported earlier in the day that Pele, 81, was back at Sao Paulo’s Albert Einstein hospital for new chemotherapy sessions.

ESPN said he was diagnosed with a tumor in the intestine, one in the liver and the beginning of another in a lung, and would undergo new exams to find other possible cancer spots.
