Pele the Greatest of All Time, Brazilian Football Legend Dies age 82
Pele, a Brazilian legend of the game, died yesterday (29 December 22) at the age of 82 after a courageous combat with colon and other issues. Pele movements and presentations were less regular as his health declined.
He is largely viewed as being one of the grandest footballers of all time, having won 3 World Championships in 1958, 1962, & 1970. His dignity, fitness levels, and mesmerising moves captivated both players and spectators. He created a rapid, liquid style which transformed the sport.
Pelé had been Brazil’s 1st modern Black true hero, and yet he very seldom spoke out against racial prejudice in a country in which the rich and influential are predominantly white. Pele made his first appearance for Brazil somewhere at age of sixteen in 1957, and one year later he has been world champion – Pele was and still is the youngest player throughout history.
