London: Football legend Pele is hoping Brazil will achieve a prize that has eluded him - an Olympics gold medal.
Pele, who played in three World Cup-winning teams for Brazil, said he would be among those cheering loudest when Brazil meet Mexico in the final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
"People say Brazil doesn't have a gold medal in the Olympics. I started to play at 17 years of age in the World Cup and I became a professional. At that time professionals could not play (in Olympics)," Pele was quoted as saying on Thursday.
