South Africa: No, Strange Claim That International Football Association Requested to Keep Late Brazilian Legend Pels Feet for Historical Reasons Is Not True

IN SHORT: Pel, the Brazilian footballer considered by many the greatest of all time, died on 29 December 2022 at the age of 82. But despite persistent rumours on social media, there is no evidence that Fifa asked to keep the dead mans feet.

Pel, the Brazilian soccer player known for hismany victories, and consideredby manyas the greatest of all time,diedon 29 December 2022.

Edson Arantes do Nascimento, as he was born,was declaredan official national treasure by the Brazilian government in 1961 and still holds theGuiness World Recordfor most wins at theFifa World Cupby a player.

One postadds that his family have given the permission for his feet to be kept in the museum.

A quick search for the player on Fifas official website brings up articlesabout Pels lifeand quotesabout the soccer player. The organisation also hasan obituary pagein honour of Pel.

But we could not find a single official announcement or statement that Fifa would keep Pels feet.

TheFifa museumin Switzerlandshowcases Pel memorabilia, such as a tracksuit top worn by him in the 1958 World Cup. But, again, there is no mention of his feet.

A Fifa spokespersonalso toldfact-checking organisation FullFact that they completely refute the claim. Every indication is that the legend wasburiedintact on3 January 2023in his hometown ofSantoson the outskirts of So Paulo, Brazil.
