SAO PAULO – Pele met with former US president Barack Obama in Sao Paulo Thursday where the pair discussed how “to make the world better,” the Brazilian football great said on Twitter.
Weeks after surgery to remove a kidney stone, a healthy-looking Pele smiled and clutched Obama's hand as they posed for a photo, later shared on social media by the three-time World Cup winner.
“Met with President Obama while he was in town. We spoke about how to work together to make the world better,” Pele said.
“Happy we are on the same team.”
Obama was in Sao Paulo for a digital innovation conference.
