Celebrity Pelé, a Brazilian soccer legend, has died at the age of 82.

Before there was Messi, Ronaldo, Beckham, there was Pelé. In 1958, he won his first World Cup for Brazil at seventeen — the youngest winner ever. He went on to win another two World Cups in 1962 and 1970, making him the only player in the world today with three World Cup trophies. For a sport that brings the world together like no other, Pelé’s rise from humble beginnings to soccer legend is a story of what is possible. Today, Jill’s and my thoughts are with his family and all those who loved him.

Pelé was a member of three Brazilian World Cup-winning teams and is widely regarded as the greatest soccer player of all time. He is often credited with coining the phrase “the beautiful game,” which is used to describe the sport.

Edson Arantes do Nascimiento was born in Tres Coracoes, Brazil, to a struggling soccer player, and grew up in poverty in Bauru, Sao Paulo. He was named after the American inventor Thomas Edison, but his parents changed the “I” to Edson. His family dubbed him “Dico” after him.

However, it was the nickname “Pelé” that became famous throughout the world.

Its origins are unknown, with Pelé himself admitting that he had no idea how it began. However, urban legend has it that it was given to him by his classmates after he mispronounced the name of his favorite soccer player, Vasco da Gama’s goalkeeper, Bile.

Waldemar de Brito, a former member of the Brazilian national soccer team, convinced Pelé’s parents to let him try out for the Santos professional club when he was 15 years old.

Pelé held the World Cup records for the youngest player to play in a World Cup final, the youngest goal scorer, and the youngest hat-trick scorer.

Pelé, according to Brazilian footballer Neymar, “changed everything.” “He turned football into art, into entertainment,” he wrote on Instagram. He gave the poor, black people, and, most importantly, Brazil visibility. Football and Brazil have risen in popularity as a result of the King!” He continued.

In an Instagram post, Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo expressed his condolences to Brazil, saying that “a mere “goodbye” to the eternal King Pelé will never be enough to express the pain that currently engulfs the entire football world.” Fans are devastated about the tragic death.

My deep condolences to all of Brazil, and in particular to the family of Edson Arantes do Nascimento. A mere “goodbye” to the eternal King Pelé will never be enough to express the pain that the entire football world is currently embracing. An inspiration to so many millions, a reference yesterday, today and forever. The love you always showed me was reciprocated in every moment we shared even from distance. He will never be forgotten and his memory will live forever in each and every one of us football lovers. Rest in peace King Pelé 🙏🏽⚽️🇧🇷

“The king of football has left us, but his legacy will never be forgotten,” Paris Saint-Kylian Germain’s Mbappé said of Pelé’s death.

Pele received the International Peace Award in 1978 for his work with UNICEF, and FIFA named him “Co-Player of the Century” in 1999, along with Argentine star Diego Maradona.
