Shillong, Dec 30: Brazilian football legend Edson Arantes do Nascimento, famously known as Pelé, the three times World Cup winner, has passed away aged 82.

Joe Fraga, his manager, confirmed his death.

Widely regarded as one of Football’s greatest players, Pelé spent nearly two decades enchanting fans and dazzling opponents as the game’s most prolific scorer with Brazilian club Santos and the Brazil national team.

Aged just 17, Pele was named in the Brazil squad that travelled to Switzerland in 1954, playing a crucial role in A Seleção’s first ever World Cup triumph. The teenager scored six goals at that edition, including a brace in his side’s 5-2 victory over Sweden in the Final.

Pele took part in four World Cups (1958, 1962, 1966 and 1970) and won three of them (1958, 1962 and 1970), making him the player with the most trophies.
