Brazil's Maracana stadium will be renamed for Pele.

The iconic stadium will be formally called "The Edson Arantes do Nascimento-Rei Pele stadium."

The stadium hosted the final of the 1950 and 2014 World Cups along with the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympics. 

Pepe won three World Cups with Brazil and is considered by many the best football player of all time.
