Soccer legend Pele was hospitalized in Brazil early Thursday morning after collapsing, but doctors have given him a good prognosis after suspecting exhaustion as the cause, reports TMZ.

Pele, 77, was scheduled to host a dinner in London with the Football Writers Association on Sunday, but the FWA now says he will not make it for obvious reasons. The FWA also issued a statement about Pele’s health.

“In the early hours of Thursday morning, Pele collapsed and was taken to hospital in Brazil where he has undergone a series of tests which appear to point to severe exhaustion.”

“He remains on fluids while doctors monitor his recovery. Thankfully, there is no suggestion of anything more serious than exhaustion.”
