Pelé, vlastním jménem Edson Arantes do Nascimento je bývalý brazilský fotbalista, který je často označován jako nejlepší fotbalista všech dob. V roce 1970 se stal prvním hráčem, který získal tři tituly mistra světa. Za svou kariéru vstřelil 1284 gólů, jubilejní tisící zaznamenal 19. listopadu 1969.

Poprvé startoval na mistrovství světa v roce 1958 a v pouhých 17 letech se hned stal jednou z hvězd brazilského týmu mistrů světa. O čtyři roky později na šampionátu v Chile získala Brazílie znovu světový titul, Pelé tentokrát kvůli zranění vypadl ze sestavy již v základní skupině. Při třetí účasti na šampionátu v roce 1966 se Pelé stal terčem záměrně tvrdé hry, zákroky soupeřů ho znovu zranily a přispěly k vyřazení Brazílie ve skupině. V roce 1970 se na mistrovství v Mexiku stal potřetí mistrem světa, když k tomu přispěl mj. vedoucím gólem ve finále a byl vyhlášen nejlepším hráčem turnaje. Ve stejném roce byl vyhlášen i nejlepším sportovcem planety.

V barvách Santos FC vyhrál šestkrát brazilskou ligu a dvakrát Pohár osvoboditelů a Interkontinentální pohár.

Citáty Pelé

„When I played, I would face up to a defender, I would beat him with my eyes, send him the wrong way; I would look one way and then go the other.“

—  Pelé
Context: Bobby Moore — he defended like a lord. Let me tell you about this man. When I played, I would face up to a defender, I would beat him with my eyes, send him the wrong way; I would look one way and then go the other. Defenders would just kick me in frustration. They would foul me because they couldn't stop me, or because I would confuse them with my movement. I would move my eyes, my legs or my body, but not always the ball. They would follow my move, but not Bobby, not ever. He would watch the ball, he would ignore my eyes and my movement and then, when he was ready and his balance was right, he would take the ball, always hard, always fair. He was a gentleman and an incredible footballer. Interviewedby Lee Clayton, "Welcome into Pelé's World" in Daily Mail [England] (27 May 2006)
