Rio inaugurates 'King Pele Avenue' in front of Maracana stadium

Rio de Janeiro inaugurates the 'Avenida Rei Pele' ('King Pele Avenue') in front of the iconic Maracana stadium, in honor of the Brazilian football legend who died on December 29 at the age of 82 after fighting cancer. "I think it's very important, in front of the Maracana, where he scored his thousandth goal," says Gomes Quintans, mayor of the Tijuca neighborhood, "he said goodbye to the Brazilian national team here in 1971 against Yugoslavia," he adds.
