Brazil's sporting icons

Slide 1 of 20


Pelé isn't just a Brazilian sporting icon. He's the most iconic football player who ever played the sport. To list just a few of his accomplishments: he's the only player to have won three World Cups, in 1958, 1962 and 1970 and is the all-time leading scorer for Brazil's national team with 77. In 1999, he was selected by a grand jury as the FIFA Player of the Century with 73 per cent of the votes. He was also named Athlete of the Century by the International Olympic Committee.Click or swipe to see more of Brazil's sporting icons.
