Hmm, according to abcnews.go.com, footballing legend Pele, 74, is being monitored in a special care unit of Brazilian hospital for urinary infection.

The Albert Einstein hospital said in a statement Thursday that the 74-year-old Pele was transferred after his condition became unstable.

Pele was in the same hospital less than 15 days ago to undergo surgery to remove kidney stones.

The legendary player was admitted to the hospital on Monday for a medical evaluation and was diagnosed with the urinary infection. He was being treated with antibiotics.
