Pele, the only player to be crowned a three-time World Cup (1958, 1962 and 1970) was named the best athlete of the last century by the International Olympic Committee in 1999, and a year later as the best player of the century appointed by FIFA.

His death shocks football fans around the world, days after the end of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, with Brazil calling for a quarter-final against Croatia on penalties.

"Bring the trophy home!", This is how Pele's official account was posted on social media, the day of Brazil's first match against Serbia (2-0).

Pele lost his last battle with detected colon cancer in September 2021 during routine examinations that he regards as the greatest footballer of all time, and this deadly dodger that contributed to the birth of Samba Ball is a "national treasure" in Brazil.

He found the net with unprecedented proliferation: 1,281 goals in 1,363 games under the colours of Santos (1956-1974), the national team "Celissau" and the American Cosmos New York (1975-1977), but far from the numbers, pelé's memory remains immortal as the "King" of his sport, with No. 10 eternal on his back.

Pele was a pioneer in modern football, with exceptional technology coupled with unparalleled sporting abilities despite his modest strength (1.72 m).

Despite His Majesty, pelé was emotional, as evidenced by memorable black and white scenes of seventeen-year-old Liaver winning his first world title in 1958 in Sweden.

He made a promise to his father, eight years after seeing him cry while listening on the radio to the famous "Maracanazo" loss to Uruguay, which denied Brazil its first world title in 1950 on its soil.

In 1970, during the first live colour broadcast of the World Cup, Pele celebrated a bright smile at the height of his career, the third world title, when he was in a gold line-up that was the most talented in history for the likes of Rivellino, Tostao and Garzinho.
