“For Brazilians, speaking about Pele is speaking about an entity, speaking about something far superior to everyone.” –Cristiano Ronaldo
For Brazil, Pelé means hero. The man who gave the country three World Cups in 1958, when he was just 17 years old, then again 1962, and then again 1970. People joke about important athletes being national treasures — Pelé literally was declared a national treasure in Brazil in 1961. For America, Pelé means legend — the man who gave the country soccer and filled it with imagination. For Nigeria, Pelé meant peace. His presence was enough to halt a war when he came to play there in 1969. For South Africa, Pelé meant awe. Nelson Mandela once said, “To watch him play was to watch the delight of a child combined with the extraordinary grace of a man in full.”
Pelé means something different to all the world. But he is a symbol of greatness to everyone.Throwing back to the most iconic athlete there ever was!
