President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has paid the Brazilian superstar Pele an emotional homage.
On December 29, 2022, the three-time World Cup champion passed away after losing his fight with colon cancer. He was 82.
Following his ground-breaking accomplishments in the sport, Pele is revered throughout the world and widely recognized as the best of all time.
In response to Pele’s passing, Ghana’s president stated that there would never be another person like him. As a result, he joined friends and supporters in paying respect to the idol.
Pele’s illustrious career, which lasted two decades, saw him score a world-record 1,281 goals in 1,363 games. Additionally, he contributed 77 goals in 92 matches for Brazil.
With his first trophy coming in 1958, before 1962 and 1970, he is still the only player to have won the World Cup three times.
