Pelé has died, football is in mourning

Pelé has died of multiple organ failure and this was confirmed as the cause of death for the 82-year-old legend of football, who had battled colon cancer throughout his life.

Ronaldo, the legendary striker who followed in the footsteps of the three-time World Cup winner, believes Pele’s impact will never fade. 

Pele was one of the most successful and popular sports figures of the twentieth century, regarded as one of the greatest players of all time and dubbed “the greatest” by FIFA.

Pelé, who averaged nearly a goal per game throughout his career, was skilled at striking the ball with either foot and anticipating his opponents’ movements on the field.
