"I suggest you start to catch your breath to celebrate with me, because with each passing day I get closer to the goal," Pele wrote on Twitter.He did not give any details, but the former Brazil, Santos and New York Cosmos player, who will be 81 on Oct. 23, has been in poor health for some time.

He is undergoing chemotherapy following September's tumour surgery.That ailment came after hip and kidney problems as well as what his son Edinho last year said was a bout with depression, something Pele later denied.Widely considered to be one the greatest players of all time, Pele is the only soccer player to hold three World Cup winner's medals, lifting the trophy with Brazil in 1958, 1962 and 1970. headtopics.com
