Brazil brought out a Pele banner in a touching gesture following their big win over South Korea at the World Cup.
The South American country ran out 4-1 winners against South Korea to book their spot in the next round of the tournament.
A rampant Brazil scored four goals without reply in the first-half, with Vinicius Jr opening the scoring in the seventh minute.
Neymar doubled his side's lead with an ice-cold penalty. Richarlison completed a stunning team move to make it 3-0 and Lucas Paqueta bagged their fourth before the break.
South Korea pulled one back in the second-half as Brazil meet Croatia in the quarter-finals.
And after securing their place in the last eight, Neymar brought out a Pele banner amid the Brazil legend's illness.
The 82-year-old was omitted to hospital to treat a respiratory infection that was aggravated by Covid.
He was thought to be watching the match from his hospital bed, with the national team offering their support to the three-time World Cup winner.
Brazil resume their Qatar venture on Friday when they face Croatia for a spot in the semi-finals.
Pele could watch Tite's side as they look to add another World Cup to their trophy cabinet.
His daughters Kely and Flavia provided an update on the health of the former footballer during an interview.
Kely said: "About three weeks ago he got Covid. He is vaccinated, with all the vaccines, but because of the cancer medicine, the chemotherapy, which is fragile, he got a lung infection.
"That's why he went to the hospital, because of the lung infection. Is he serious? It's serious, because he's a certain age, he's treating cancer."
Flavia added: "At the hospital, he is better assisted. But he's not in the ICU, he's in a normal room. So he's not at risk. As a person with a more delicate health, it is better to be in the hospital."
