True love and admiration for an athlete like no other. The little boy born Edson Arantes do Nascimento who grew up to be Pelé - an international hero, admired by many, respected by even more. He has the incredible power to unite people and stop war, even if for a short time. Let all look up to the man who came to be known as the King, not only for his skills, but also for his morals, his honor, and his good-will.
