Get well soon, GOAT.

Um, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I read yesterday that he is dying and has moved to hospice care to manage his pain.

It seems he's been diagnosed with bowel cancer and he was on chemotherapy but his body stopped responding to the treatment. It seems that there is nothing that can be done beyond keeping him comfortable.

It's really sad.I would love it if he could hang on long enough to see Brazil win.
