Many footballers and athletes have also wished the legend a quick recovery starting with Harry Kane of England and Kylian Mbappe of France.

Harry Kane, who has been lucky to interact with Pele personally, said that the legend helped change his thinking on how football works.

"To hear those words back then from him was really special for me. And I always feel like I'm someone who is always learning and will continue to learn for the rest of my career, so he was spot on with his advice.
