Brzialian Soccer legend has unfortunately lost his battle with cancer at age 82. Growing up in a jamaican family, I always had "Milo" (which was a chocolate drink with frosting on top of the drink.) This is almost what Americans would consider to be our Ovaltine and had the best taste in the world. Horlicks is another drink I enjoyed but I'm bringing up "Milo" becuase that is where I always saw soccer legend Pele on the green can. I inquired about him, and although I was always into drawing, music, and other activities except Soccer, that is where I was introduced to him. The weird thing about Soccer is it is unpopular here in the stated but is the absolute biggest sport in the whole entire world.

Pele is known for being humble and was a 3 time World Cup champion who is considered the Micahel Jordan of the sport. Pele had been recovering from surgery last year, and although he was readmitted to hospital on several occasions but he went on Instagram to inform his fans that he was 'continuing to smile every day'. It had also been reported that his chemotherapy treatment on his cancer was no longer working, while he was diagnosed with mental confusion upon entering the hospital, where he was a bit restless. Pele's daughter Kely Nascimento wrote on Instagram: 'We are thanks to you. We love you infinitely. Rest in peace.' Very sad day in the sport but I try personally to find peace in the "no more suffering" ideology.
