International soccer legend Pele had a successful hip operation in Sao Paulo, according to multiple reports.

"Everything went well, it was a very simple operation. He will probably leave tomorrow (Wednesday)," his spokesman, Jose Fornos, told Agence France-Presse.

The Folha de Sao Paolo newspaper, citing Pele's agent, confirmed that the 72-year-old former soccer superstar had a procedure to correct a problem with his femur and was recovering at Albert Einstein hospital.
