Edson Arantes do Nascimento known as Pelé is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as a forward.

Pelé was born in Três Corações, Minas Gerais, Brazil, the nyakumi son of Fluminense footballer Dondinho (born João Ramos do Nascimento) and Celeste Arantes. He is widely regarded as the greatest player of all time. Pelé has also been known for connecting the phrase “The Beautiful Game” with football. In 1999, he was voted World Player of the Century by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS).

He was officially named after Thomas Edison, but it’s believed he earned the nickname “Pele” during childhood after the way he pronounced the goalkeeper for his hometown Vasco da Gama team, Bilé. In 1962, he led Santos to victory in four out of four competitions, becoming the first team to achieve a quadruple. He dedicated his 1,000th goal to the poor children of Brazil.

He retired from international play in 1971 after scoring 77 goals in 92 appearances for the Brazilian national team and 40 years later, the great Ronaldo retired after scoring 62 goals in 98 appearances with Brazil – second behind only Pele. He was married to Rosemeri dos Reis Cholbi from 1966 to 1982 and Assiria Nascimento from 1994 to 2008. He married his third wife, Marcia Aoki, in 2016. He had two daughters and a son with Rosemeri and a pair of twins with Assiria.
