Soccer Legend Pelé Dead at 82

Dec 30, 2022

The world of soccer has lost a legend.

Pelé, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, has died at the age of 82 on Dec. 29. 

His daughter, Kely Nascimento, confirmed their family’s loss in a heartbreaking tribute. “Everything we are is because of you,” she wrote alongside a photo of hands surrounding the athlete shared to Instagram. “We love you infinitely. Rest in peace.”

Shortly after, fellow athlete also paid tribute to Pelé, including soccer star Kylian Mbappé, who wrote, “The king of football has left us but his legacy will never be forgotten,” alongside an Instagram snap of the two, adding, “RIP KING.”

Former President Barack Obama shared a tribute reading, “Pelé was one of the greatest to ever play the beautiful game. And as one of the most recognizable athletes in the world, he understood the power of sports to bring people together. Our thoughts are with his family and everyone who loved and admired him.”
