Pele passed away on Friday, December 30, after a long battle with Cancer.
The Brazilian legend is one of the most decorated players in the history of football.
During his long career, Pele reportedly scored 1279 goals for club and country.
But this is not his biggest achievement!
The Brazilian is the only player to win three FIFA World Cup trophies.
At club level, Pele won six Brazilian leagues and two Copa Libertadores titles with Santos.
He was also named FIFA's Player of the Century and in TIME's 100 Most Important People of the Century.
Pele will now join football's greatest Diego Maradona and Johan Cruyff in the team of the heavens.
