Pele's son Edinho speaking in an interview with Brazil's Globo Esporte says that the three-time World Cup winner now refuses to leave home, following complications with his recovery from hip surgery.
"He is very sheepish, reclusive."
"He's embarrassed, he doesn't want to go out, be seen, or do practically anything that involves leaving the house.

"He's pretty fragile. So he has this problem with mobility and that has set off a kind of depression.
"He can't walk normally. Only with the walker. He still has a lot of difficulty walking."
