Pele changed everything, he turned football into art, into entertainment, he gave a voice to the poor and blacks in particular.

Football and Brazil have raised their status thanks to the king.

He is gone, but his magic will remain, Pele is eternal.”

It is worth noting that Brazilian football legend Pele died on Thursday, December 29, at the age of 82, after a struggle with illness.

Pele's deteriorating health has captured the attention of the entire world over the past few months, especially during the recent World Cup competitions in Qatar, and many teams sent messages of support to the Brazilian legend, especially his national team, Brazil.

Pele is considered one of the most prominent and famous football legends, as he achieved many achievements with his Brazilian national team, and the "Black Jewel" is considered the only player in history to be crowned the World Cup three times (1958, 1962 and 1970).
