    Pele

    Pele, the only player to win three World Cups in football history, died on September 5th at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo following a battle with cancer; he became a legendary figure in the game after winning the tournament in 1958 as a 17-year-old, scoring twice in the final to defeat hosts Sweden.

    The legendary striker who is Brazil's all-time leading scorer with 77 goals in 92 matches, was born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, to a poor family in Sao Paulo.

    He won a treble of World Cups, the 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cups with Brazil.
