Pelé is a name known around the world, a sports legend that changed soccer forever, and was a national hero who carried the hopes and dreams of a country on his back. Charting his meteoric rise-from scrubbing floors to support his family to honing his electrifying playing style on the streets to leading Brazil's national team to its first World Cup victory at the age of 17, Pelé vividly brings to life one of the greatest sports story of the 20th century.
