Brazil Legend Pele Turns 70

It's a rather special week for Brazilian legend Edison Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pele. The former attacker has a landmark to celebrate when he turns 70 this week.

There appears to be some doubt about the exact date of birth of the former Santos star, as many celebrate Pele's birthday on October 21. However, the Brazilian is adamant that he was actually born in Tres Coracoes two days later.

Pele is regarded as the best player in the world by many football fans, even though Argentina legend Diego Armando Maradona will certainly have a different opinion on this subject.

The story is too old to be commented.
