Pele

Brazilian idol Pele was also the victim of a robbery in his home country. A gang of ten youths attacked the three-time world champion’s chauffeur-driven car while it was stopped in Sao Paulo traffic at the end of May, snatching a watch, a gold chain and a mobile phone from the 67-year-old. The footballing icon tried to fend off the attackers by telling them who he was, but the young gangsters were unimpressed, and insisted he hand over the valuables.
