Brazil great Pele has died at the age of 82, leaving behind one of sport’s great legacies.
The 82-year-old had been moved to palliative care early in December after his body stopped responding to cancer treatment.
Before Christmas Day, his family travelled to be by his side at the Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital in Sao Paulo.
