Where as some believing fans accepted the post, others were promptly suspicious of the report, maybe taking in their exercise from the colossal measure of phony passing reports developing about famous people over late months. Some pointed out that the news had not been continued any real Brazilian system, showing that it was a phony report, as the passing of a footballer of Pelé's stature would be real news crosswise over systems.

On Sunday (July 14) the footballer's reps formally affirmed that Pelé isn't dead. "He joins the extensive rundown of VIPs who have been misled by this lie. He's as yet perfectly healthy, quit accepting what you see on the Internet," they said.
