Ronaldo honors the late Brazilian legend Pele after his passing

Cristiano Ronaldo paid respect to the late Brazilian superstar Pele after his passing at the age of 82, stating that “a mere goodbye” is insufficient for the three-time World Cup victor.

According to his daughter, Pele passed away on Thursday after a fight with colon cancer.

International football teams and players have paid their tribute to the attacker, who assisted his country in winning the 1958, 1962, and 1970 World Cups. An outpouring of grief over his passing has occurred around the sport.

Now, Ronaldo, who is generally mentioned as one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, has composed his own honest tribute to the former forward.

Ronaldo’s Pele-related tribute

The family of Mr. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, in particular, has my sincere condolences, he stated on Instagram.

“The sorrow that currently envelops the entire football world cannot be adequately expressed by by saying goodbye to the eternal King Pele.

He served as an example for countless numbers of people and served as a point of reference for all time. He always treated me with love, and even when we were apart, that love was reciprocated.

“He will always be remembered, and each of us football fans will carry on his memory forever. Peace be with you, King Pele.
