Pele, arguably the greatest football player of all time, died at the age of 82.
During his 21-year career, he set a world record with 1,281 goals in 1,363 appearances, including 77 goals in 92 matches for his country.
Pele was named Fifa’s Player of the Century in 2000 after becoming the only player to win the World Cup three times, in 1958, 1962, and 1970.
In recent years, he had experienced kidney and prostate issues.
Pele underwent colon surgery in September 2021 at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo after a tumor was discovered during routine tests. In late November 2022, he was readmitted to the hospital.
Kely Nascimento, his daughter, has kept fans up to date on her father’s condition via social media updates from the hospital.
