One of the best football players of our time, Cristiano Ronaldo, paid tribute to the memory of Pele, who died today at the 83 year of his life.
– My deepest condolences throughout Brazil, and especially the family of Edson Arantes do Nascimento. A simple “goodbye” to the eternal king Pele will not be enough to express the pain that the entire football world is now experiencing. An inspiration for many millions, a benchmark yesterday, today and forever. The love he always showed me was mutual, despite the distance. He will never be forgotten and his memory will live forever in each of us football fans. Rest in peace King Pele, wrote Cristiano Ronaldo on social media.
