Pelé is depressed and has become a recluse, says son

Pelé is depressed over his poor health and reluctant to leave the house because he cannot walk unaided, as per the football legend’s son. Pelé, 79, has had hip trouble for years and now needs a frame to walk. ’Imagine, he’s the king, he was always such an imposing figure, and today he can’t walk properly’, Pelé’s son Edinho said.

He could wallow in depression, or he could walk proudly with support and state that to become king he drove his legs and hips beyond their limits and these are his war scars and testament to the amount of blood, sweat, and tears he put into becoming the king of his sport. There's many ways to look at it.
