Football legend Pele has been laid to rest.

The Brazilian who died of cancer on 29 December aged 82 – was buried on the ninth floor of the Memorial Necropole Ecumenica cemetery on Tuesday (03.01.22), which overlooks Urbano Caldeira stadium in his hometown of Santos, in a private ceremony after his body was transported through the streets, where thousands of people had lined the route to pay their final respects.

Pele’s body had been lying in state in the centre circle of the pitch at Santos’ stadium for 24 hours before a procession carried his coffin to the vertical cemetery via a route that passed his former family home, where his 100-year-old mother Celeste and his sister watched on.

He was then buried in a private ceremony with just his family present.

Among those at the stadium – where Pele spent almost his entire club career from 1956 to 1974 – were the sportsman’s best friend and former teammate Manoel Maria.
