Brazil celebrates Pele’s death anniversary. A star also dies one day. The Brazilian legend Pele proved that to be true. This star, who is adept at taking the breath of the opponent’s defense, also succumbed to death one day. Friday (December 29) marks one year since Pele’s death.
People of this planet have not forgotten Pele even after a year of his death. His memory is still indelible to millions of football fans around the world. Friday saw his appearance in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s largest city, in Pele’s native Brazil.
The anniversary of Pele’s death was commemorated with reverence around the world, but the biggest event was seen in Rio de Janeiro. Rio’s symbol, Christ the Redeemer, was emblazoned on Pele’s number 10 jersey last night. A letter from Pope Francis praising his illustrious playing career was also read out by the local orchestra.
Pele’s number 10 jersey, worn by Christ the Redeemer, is not actually made of cloth. It’s all made with a laser show. It is organized at night instead of day to complete the whole thing successfully.

A photo of the laser show was uploaded and posted on Christ the Redeemer’s social media, writing, ‘A night to pay tribute to the king of football. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, known to the world as Pele. The greatest athlete of the century left us exactly one year ago. We have organized a program in collaboration with Pela Foundation to pay tribute to him. There is also a message from the Pope.
Pele was admitted to the hospital in late 2022 as part of a routine checkup after suffering from chronic kidney and prostate cancer. But he did not return from there. This legend left the world at the age of 82 while undergoing treatment at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Sao Paulo on December 29 of that year.
