An inspiring photo from Russia in honor of the World football icon; a rare display of honor and respect to whom it is due.
The Brazilian professional football icon, Pele (retired) who played as a forward for his country was widely regarded as the greatest football player of all time. In 1999, Pele was voted as World Player of the Century by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics, and also as elected Athlete of the Century by the International Olympic Committee. Pelé is the most successful league goal-scorer in the world, scoring 1281 goals in 1363 games, which included unofficial friendlies and tour games. During his active days, Pelé was the best-paid athlete in the world.
Every profession get its own oga at the top! Pele is the boss when it comes to football. Watch how Diego Maradona of Argentina kisses the legend while the Russian strongman Vladimir Putin watches in awe. Other football icons such as our own Jay Jay Okocha and Kanu Nwankwo were also present to give respect to World Pele, the doyen of football. E no Easy oo!
