Celeste, Pele’s mother, played a significant role in the Brazilian person’s performance. In light of “O’Rei’s” passing, we reflect on some of the interactions the two of them had.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento recently celebrated Celeste’s 100th birthday by posting a message of gratitude to her on Instagram.
“Brazilian Mother of the Year” was given to Pele’s mother.
Shortly after the 1966 FIFA World Cup held in England, Pele was also practicing with Brazilian National Squad in Teresopolis until he spotted his mom had shown up at the practice fields without being invited. He immediately raced to give her a bear embrace.
She had just been named “Brazilian Mom of the Year” by O’Globo. She got married to Dondinho, a.k.a. Joao Ramos do Nascimento.
Celeste was born in Tres Coracoes, Minas Gerais, Brazil; however, the family relocated to Bauru when Pele was a little child.
What His Mom Taught Him?
His mom taught him to follow his aspirations in soccer, and he found some success there at a very young age.
With 1,279 goals before quitting in 1977, Pelé holds the Guinness record for the most goals and assists in a career.
On social sites, Pelé frequently updated his followers on his condition and thanked them for their encouragement. He posted on Twitter and Instagram as well.
The football legend has recently experienced several health issues, starting with an ICU visit in 2021 to remove a tumor.
In early November, he was unexpectedly hospitalized due to a breathing infection caused by Covid, which was originally believed to be a “reassessment of chemotherapy and radiation.”
Numerous tributes to Pelé were made during the 2022 Fifa World cup in Qatar, which came to a close with Messi raising his first Cup Final trophy and guiding Argentina to win.
