Pelé, AKA the King of Football (or simply The King), is widely considered to have been the best player of all time. A three-time World Cup champion with the Brazilian team (1958, 1962 and 1970), Pelé also won the Intercontinental Cup (1962 and 1963), the Copa Libertadores (1962 and 1963), the North American Soccer League (1977) and the São Paulo championship (ten times) in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

Since his retirement from football, Pelé has worked as an ambassador for the UN and UNESCO for Education, Ecology and the Environment. Pelé also acted as Brazil’s minister for sport from 1995 to 1998. However, he has not retired from football altogether, and still serves as a spokesman, ambassador and philanthropist.
