Pele was the youngest World Cup winner – sad Joe Biden

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, has expressed his shock at the death of Brazilian soccer star Pele.

The footballer, widely regarded as the greatest player in history, died Thursday at the age of 82.

Many football fans around the world continued to mourn the legend who won three World Cups and the best player during his career.

In response, Biden said in a post on his Facebook page, before the appearance of the best players in the contemporary world, including
Messi and Ronaldo, Pele broke several records.

He wrote: “Before there was Messi, there was Ronaldo Pele. In 1958 Pele won his first World Cup for Brazil at the age of seventeen – the youngest winner ever.”

He went on to win two World Cups in 1962 and 1970, making him the only player in the world today to win three World Cup titles.

“For a sport that has brought the world together like no other, Pele’s rise from humble beginnings to footballing legend is a story of what is possible.”

The US President offered his condolences to the family of the deceased, saying that his thoughts are with them.

The deceased, born in October 1940, played his first match for Santos in 1956 when he was only 15 years old.
