Londoners will have the opportunity to meet Brazil legend Pele in the heart of London’s West End on Saturday.

To celebrate Brazil reaching the Olympic football final on Saturday, the legend that is Pele will be at Soccer Scene football store on Carnaby Street to meet fans and sign autographs.

Football-loving Londoners will get the once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Pele, one of the most iconic footballers of all time, between 1pm-2pm on Saturday afternoon.

With large crowds expected, football fans are advised to get down to the store early to avoid disappointment.

After his appearance at Soccer Scene, Pele will be off to Wembley to watch Brazil’s Olympic final against Mexico, where the latest generation of samba stars will hope to claim Olympic gold.
