The world lost the King of Football, adorable Black Pearl Pele three times World Cup Football winning team key member. Some losses are never going to be replaced for centuries to come.
Pele’s death, the first super duper star of world football, is a loss for the world. He was 82 years old. The world’s only footballer who won the World Cup three times passed away after the Qatar World Cup. He was suffering from bowel cancer since 2021. He was admitted to the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo on 29 November 2022 after his condition deteriorated during the World Cup in Qatar.
Pele was born on October 23, 1940. Father’s given name is Edson Arantes Di Nascimento. However, the world did not know him by that name. First World Cup for Brazil in 1958. Played in four consecutive World Cups. Among them, Brazil is the three-time champion. No other footballer in the world has won three World Cups.
On December 22, the incidence of cancer suddenly increased. He did not return home following the advice of the doctors. Pele spent Christmas this year in the hospital. His daughter Kelly posted a picture of her father hugging her in bed. His son Edison also reached the hospital last Saturday. Family members have been by his side in the hospital for the past few days. But the end was not saved. Doctors could not recover the king of football. Pele went to the land of eternal sleep.
He is the “greatest” footballer of the 20th century as judged by the “FIFA” magazine readers and the jury board. However, general football fans on the internet voted in favor of Diego Maradona. FIFA eventually announced the two men jointly as the Centenarians. Maradona died suddenly in 2020 at the age of 60. This time Pele also lost the world.
