Watch Pele’s funeral and wake
Pele will have a public funeral at Santos’ home stadium, Vila Belmiro, on January 2.
His coffin will be placed on the pitch, allowing fans to pay their respects to an all-time great across a period of 24 hours.
A procession through the streets of Santos will then take place, with the parade passing through Canal 6 – the area in which his mother lives – before continuing to a private burial at the Memorial Necropole Ecumenica that will be attended by his family and close friends.
Pele scored over 1,000 goals in the most illustrious of playing careers, with 77 of those recorded through 92 appearances for his country.
