But a heavy weight fell on Brazil and the world of football tonight (Thursday) with the news of Pele's death.

The legendary former footballer spent the last month in the hospital fighting for his life.

In the last two weeks, everyone realized that it was a matter of time and the news of his death struck an entire country with sadness.

"We will love you forever. Rest in peace," his daughter wrote on her Instagram account.

" "Pela, the immortal king of soccer, dies at the age of 82," read the headline in the Brazilian O GLOBO, "It is difficult to choose the words to open the text that heralds his death of Pela.

Would it be correct to say that the greatest footballer of all time is dead, to focus on his talent and ability on fields around the world?

Or would it be more correct to tell what a great athlete he was, and what example he set as a person?"

Former England international Gary Lineker: "The most divine footballer and the happiest person. He played football that few have come close to. He lifted the World Cup three times in that beautiful yellow shirt. He has left us, but he will always be an immortal footballer."
