Football World Legend Pele Remarries at 75

Really, love has no age! You could fall in love at any age, you could experience and be happy in love at an advanced age! That is the case of the world’s football legend, the Brazilian football player, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, commonly known as Pele. He is 75 today and he said “Yes” for the third time to happiness and love, for the betterment and worse.

On Saturday 9th July 2016,  Cibele Marcia Aoki and Abeti Pele tied the knot in Sao Paulo.  According to newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo, Pele reveals he has met "definitive love". Pele and Aoki have been dating since 2010. Aoki has been by Pele in all his public and corporate appearances around the world, and assisted him during his ill moments. They met for the first time in the 1980s in New York, but began their romance 30 years later in 2010 when they met again in a lift at Sao Paulo.

Aoki is a Brazilian business woman of Japanese origin aged 50, and she will be Pele’s life companion for the third time. Her presence and attention in the Football legend’s life for the past six years is a prove that there is no standard moment to experience love. The private wedding ceremony in the resort of Guaruja, Sao Paulo, counted more than 120 guests among which family, close friends and business collaborators. We wish them a happy marriage and many blessings in their new life.
