He inspired many youths, countries and generations to embrace the round leather game and his exploits has been the standard that other players strive to emulate.
Besides his on field achievements, Pele played many roles after retirement to promote the beautiful game. He served as Brazil’s minister of sports and as UNICEF’s ambassador, amongst others.
According to FIFA President, Infantino, Pele’s life was much more than Football. He improved attitudes in Brazil, South America, and all around the world. It is impossible to capture his legacy in a few sentence.
