The pair were once regarded as the world's greatest players.

Pelé said: "You know, not long before he died [in 2005] we met in London. His father was there.

"To me he never looked like a European. He was a Latin player – a Brazilian player."

Best was once quoted as saying: "Pelé called me the greatest footballer in the world. That is the ultimate salute to my life."
