Brazilian football legend Pele has died at the age of 82.
He is credited with setting a world record with his 1,281 goals in 1,363 games during his 21-year career. This includes his 77 goals in his 92 appearances for his home country.
In 1958, 1962 and 1970 he was the only player to win the World Cup three times, and in 2000 he was named FIFA Player of the Century.
He had suffered from kidney and prostate problems in recent years.
Pele underwent surgery at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo in September 2021 to remove a tumor from his colon after a routine checkup detected a tumor. Hospitalized again in late November 2022.
His daughter, Kelly Nascimento, continues to keep fans updated on her father’s condition with regular social media updates from her hospital.
On Thursday, she posted a photo of Pele’s family resting their hands on his body at the hospital, writing: We love you infinitely. “Rest in peace.”
