Brazilian soccer great Pelé turns 80 tomorrow (Fri.), but thanks to the pandemic, the celebration will have to wait.
The three-time World Cup winner will spend the day isolated with a few family members outside Sao Paulo, where he is expected to receive a flood of tributes from players, fans, celebrities and politicians.
His long-time spokesman, Pepito Fornos, said Pelé will likely spend his birthday at his mansion on the coast of Sao Paulo state, where he has been since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pelé is Brazil’s all-time leading scorer with 77 goals.
