Brazil legend Pele has died on Thursday, December 29, at the age of 82.
The three-time World Cup champion has died after battling with medical issues in the last few months.
Pele was moved to palliative care earlier this month after his condition became critical, with his body failing to respond to cancer treatment.
In September 2021, the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo performed surgery to remove a colon tumour that had been found during normal examinations.
His daughter Kely Nascimento has kept fans updated on her father’s condition with regular social media updates from the hospital.
On Thursday she posted a picture of what appeared to be Pele’s family’s hands on his body in the hospital and wrote: “Everything we are is thanks to you. We love you infinitely. Rest in peace.”
