During his legendary career, Pele scored a world-record 757 goals for club and country between 1956 and 1977, including 77 goals in 92 appearances for Brazil. He was also the only player in history to have won three World Cups, lifting the trophy in 1958, 1962 and 1970.

Pele’s daughter Kely Nascimento broke the news of his passing on Instagram, posting a picture of what appeared to be the hands of family resting on his body in a hospital bed.

She added the caption: “Everything we are is thanks to you. We love you infinitely. Rest in peace.
