It was the team in which he became a man and built his “myth”, taking it to the top of the world. The great football “love” of life together with the Brazilian National Team. And therefore, Santos could only “farewell” the legendary Pele, who “passed away” on Thursday (29/12) at the age of 82, in the way he deserved.

On the Brazilian team’s official social media accounts, as the news of his death broke, a large photo of a crown, along with the word “Eternal”, was uploaded.

Santos even recently changed its insignia, adding a crown above its two stars.
