Brazilian football great Pele has successfully undergone surgery for the removal of a kidney stone in a Sao Paulo hospital.

The Albert Einstein Hospital said on its website that Pele's surgery went well, but did not provide additional details.

The 78-year-old returned to Brazil on April 2 after spending five days in a Paris hospital for a urinary infection.

He had been in France to attend an event with Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

Pele has been in the hospital frequently over the last few years for kidney and prostate problems.
