Recall that few days ago, Naira Diary reported that Pele was in the hospital and that sent goodbye to family and friends from the hospital bed. Football legend, Pele was slowly losing the battle against Cancer, and family said ‘his condition was worsening even further’. 😢🙏💔
Just a few minutes ago, he was pronounced dead.
Pele who is the only player in history to win three World Cups, passed away at the Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo following a battle with cancer; he became an icon of the game after winning the World Cup in 1958 as a 17-year-old, netting twice in the final to defeat hosts Sweden
