SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazilian Pele has successfully undergone back surgery for nerve root decompression and his postoperative recovery is satisfactory, the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo said on Saturday.

According to his manager, the elective surgeries are to fix discomfort in his back and hips.  They are hoping his recovery will allow him to be strong and healthy for the Rio Olympic Games.
