Football Legend, Pele had an event hosted for him by The Football Writers Association (FWA) at the Savoy hotel on Sunday.

But the event was later cancelled as it was said that the 77-year-old would not be able to make it to London.

Read the statement of the FWA:

'In the early hours of Thursday morning, Pele collapsed and was taken to hospital in Brazil where he has undergone a series of tests which appear to point to severe exhaustion,'

'He remains on fluids while doctors monitor his recovery. Thankfully, there is no suggestion of anything more serious than exhaustion.'

Pele who's widely regarded as the greatest football player of all time won three World Cups with Brazil.
