Funeral of Pele to take place today

Following three days of national mourning, Brazilian football legend Pele’s burial takes place this afternoon.

There will be a procession through the streets of Sao Paolo before the three-time World Cup winner is laid to rest in a private family service.

Thousands of mourners have said their goodbyes to Pele, who died last week, as his coffin has been lying in state at the home of his former club Santos for 24 hours.

Brazil’s president Lula will attend the wake.
