Looks like Pele will not be at the opening ceremonies!
The report (BBC) said he is ill. I hope this not serious as there has been too many celebrity deaths this year.
I normally watch the opening ceremony just to see all the participants. Sometimes get a weird up welling of emotions as it is a heavy moment in the
athletes' life. All that hard work, time spent, special diets, days away from home and friends to stand there and represent your country.
And that is why I wish Pele would be able to attend!
