Harbhajan Singh has met his football idol Pele at a promotional even for a watch company in Brazil this week. Currently out of the Indian team, Harbhajan has been watching the FIFA World Cup 2014 on TV but meeting Pele was special.
Harbhajan said meeting Pele was a "lifetime" experience. "It was a great meeting with the legend. He is a simple man," Harbhajan said.
A Roger Federer fan, Harbhajan comes from a land that has produced several national football stars like Inder Singh and Parminder Singh. "Football is a simple game, and this big icon is also so simple," said Harbhajan, who has an aggregate of 413 wickets from 101 Tests, told The Hindu.
