Pelé, the Brazilian king of football, died at 82.
Perhaps the greatest player in the history of world football has passed away. Pelé, a three-time world champion from Brazil, passed away at 82 on Thursday, December 29, 2022.
His family confirmed the news of his death.
He had been sick for a while and had recently needed hospital treatment.
“Thank you, daddy; you made us everything we are. “We will always love you.” His daughter, Kely Nascimento, stated on Instagram.
He made art out of football.
“Before Pelé, 10 was just a number,” says Neymar, who shares the Brazilian national team’s record for goals scored with Pelé.
Football was merely a sport before Pelé. Pelé rewrote history. He turned football into entertainment and art. He gave voice to the underprivileged and black people, and most importantly, he made Brazil visible.
Brazil became a well-known football nation because of Pele! Although he is gone, his magic will live on. Pelé is unstoppable!
In a tweet, Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his condolences to the family of Mr. Edson Arantes do Nascimento on behalf of the entire Brazilian nation.
Words alone cannot adequately express the anguish currently engulfing the football world.
Pele was an example for the past, present, and future, inspiring millions.
Football fans will always cherish his memory, and he will never be forgotten.
Beckenbauer laments the passing of a “perfect friend.”
Reacting to the death of his friend and former teammate, Franz Beckenbauer said these comforting words: “Today, football lost the greatest man in its history, and I lost a special friend.”
Pelé has three hearts: one for his family, one for everyone, and one for football.
“I’m confident that “Heaven FC” with Maradona and Pelé will be forever unstoppable.”
Brazil’s Pelé won the world championship three times.
Pelé’s real name was Edson Arantes do Nascimento, and he battled cancer.
He stood out, and I am not sure he instructed me he had colon cancer a year ago.
Pelé had his treatment reevaluated at a hospital in Sao Paulo at the end of November.
The football great from Brazil’s family gathered at his bedside at the Albert Einstein Medical Center over the holidays.
On Saturday night, his daughter Kely Cristina Nascimento shared a family portrait on her Instagram page that included Pelé’s spouse, Marcia Aoki.
Pele’s daughter wrote, “Thank you, everybody.”
“Happy Holidays. Thankfulness, love, unity, and family. I sincerely appreciate all the love and light you have sent.
The memories are all that are left.
There will never be another football player like Pele.
At 16, he made his international debut. A year later, he won the World Cup, scoring twice in the championship game.
The following two world championships arrived.
With FC Santos, Pelé won 26 championships in 17 years and 501 goals in 493 games.
The number is barely any less astounding if you only include the games he participated in for Brazil, FC Santos, and later the New York Cosmos: 775 goals in 841 contests.
On his social media, Pelé last posted the phrase, “Love, love, and love forever.”
In his lifetime, the football legend Pelé changed the world in his little way. He fought to end a globalized conflict on many continents, helped people worldwide, and preached what he thought was the key to solving our problems.
Rest in peace, kind Pele.
