Brazilian football legend Pele has sought to reassure fans that he is doing fine after his son pointed to depression, saying the ageing star now barely leaves home.

“Thanks for your prayers and your worry. I am doing fine. I will be 80 this year,” Pele, considered by many to be the greatest footballer of all time, said in a statement.

“I have good days and bad days, which is normal for people my age.

“I am not missing my (advertising) commitments on my busy schedule.

“I continue to accept my physical limitations in the best way possible, but I try to keep the ball rolling.”

Pele’s son Edinho had said in an interview with Globoesporte last week that his father was “pretty fragile in terms of his mobility… and that makes him suffer a kind of depression.”

“Just imagine, he’s the ‘King,’ he was always such an imposing figure, and now he can’t walk normally. He gets very shy, very embarrassed about that,” his son had said.
