Pele has been unable to walk normally and reunites with his former teammates in a wheelchair
China News Service, February 24. The movie “Pele” produced by the streaming media Netflix was released recently, and the 80-year-old player Pele also appeared in the public again. However, what attracted more attention was Bailey’s thin figure and staggering pace. He seemed to be unable to walk normally.
In the documentary, when Bailey entered the screen for the first time, he could only enter the chair in the center of the room with the help of a walking frame. After arriving at the seat, he pushed the metal frame aside, and then began the interview. In the subsequent video, there is also a scene of Bailey attending a barbecue party with former teammates in a wheelchair.
In 2020, Pele’s son Edinho once said that Pele had undergone a crotch surgery before, but his recovery was not satisfactory and it was inconvenient to walk. Bailey felt very embarrassed about his situation, even reluctant to go out, did not want to be seen, and lived a life of simplicity.
This makes him very Worried about his father’s mental state: “His (Pele’s) body is relatively weak now. He had a hip replacement and his body did not recover very well. This made him move inconvenience and also caused his depression later. Imagine. He used to be the king of the football field, but now he can’t walk normally.” He also revealed that his father had suffered from depression because of walking inconvenience.
The documentary director recalled that it took them 8 months to communicate with Bailey, and finally they had the opportunity for this interview.
In recent years, Bailey’s physical condition is very unsatisfactory. He has been hospitalized many times because of spine and hip discomfort. In April 2018, Bailey was hospitalized for kidney stone surgery.
Pele’s son accepts Brazil Media interview
Nevertheless, in the documentary, when Bailey reunited with his former teammates, he still seemed very happy and showed his teammates how to manipulate a wheelchair. Pele also recalled: “The 1970 World Cup was the best time in my life.”
As one of the greatest players in the history of world football, Pei, who was called the “king of the ball” Interest led Brazil to win the World Cup three times, he is a legend in the legend. It also makes the fans feel sad to see that the omnipotent “ball king” in the past is now very difficult to walk.
The hero is late, so I can’t help but let it go People sigh. But in a daze, it seemed that Bailey’s stubbornness could still be felt. At the beginning, it was this stubbornness that made him; now it is also this stubbornness that made him refuse to accept the erosion of years and the mercy of fate. I hope that the old football king will recover as soon as possible and enjoy his old age. (End)
