Legendary Brazil forward Pele’s son says Pele is reluctant to leave his house because he cannot walk unaided.

The three-time World Cup winner, widely regarded as the greatest player of all time, was taken to hospital with a urinary infection last year.

79-year-old Pele, has had problems with his hip for some time and now needs a frame to walk, with many of his recent public appearances in a wheelchair.

Pele scored a world record total of 1,281 goals in 1,363 appearances during his 21-year career, including 77 goals in 91 appearances for Brazil.
