Pele: The greatest – Ask many Brazilians who is the greatest footballer of all time and their answer will be simple: "Pele." The striker, pictured here in 2014, won three World Cups with Brazil between 1958 and 1970.
Record-breaker – Pele is his country's leading goalscorer with 77 goals from 92 caps.
Classic game – The Brazil team of 1970, which beat Italy 4-1 in the World Cup final in Mexico, is widely regarded as the greatest of all time. Pele is seen here leaping on his teammates.
Teen dream – Pele told CNN that one of his most memorable moments as a player was winning the 1958 World Cup when he was just 17.
Injury blow – Brazil also won the title in 1962 in Chile, but Pele did not play in the final after being injured in Brazil's second game.
