SAO PAULO (AP) Pele's condition is improving as he undergoes temporary kidney treatment in an intensive care unit, a Brazilian hospital said Friday.
The Albert Einstein hospital said the 74-year-old Pele is "lucid" and breathing normally without any support.
The Brazilian soccer great has been hospitalized since Monday because of a urinary tract infection. He had surgery to remove kidney stones on Nov. 13.
