“I told myself before the game, he’s made of skin and bones just like everyone else. But I was wrong.” –Italian defender Tarcisio Burgnich
On June 21, 1970, Pelé took a bow.
It was on that day, in the center of the sports world — right in the heart of Mexico City, with 105,000 throaty partisans cheering his every move, some 7,349 feet above sea level — that the game’s greatest won his third and final World Cup for Brasil against Italy. As he was carried away on the shoulders of his teammates, he defined what a living legend really is.
For this year’s World Cup, celebrate the greatest of all time!
