Pelé was a football prodigy that played with “ginga” - a uniquely Brazilian mix of style, movement and ball juggling skills. As a child, playing on the rough favela football pitches of Sao Paolo, he developed his perfect balance, unique vision, and an unimaginable control of the ball that left everyone breathless. Labeled "the Greatest" by FIFA, in Brazil he is known as "The King Pelé" after winning the country's first World Cup in 1958, where he became the youngest player ever to play and score in the final.
He is a living legend of all sports, a global icon, and a celebrity to celebrities. An idol to so many, not only for the exceptional athlete that he was but also for the human being he is.
A true role model for so many around the world, he will always be remembered as the first global football superstar. He is the only player to have won the World Cup three times and still holds the Guinness World Record for most goals scored during a career - 1,279 (in 1,363 games)!
This documentary uses remastered game footage of some of Pelé’s most legendary goals for Brazil throughout his incredible career.
