 PHOTOS Fans line up to pay last respects as 24 hour wake for Pele begins

Fans all over the world on Monday pay their last respects to football legend Pele with a 24-hour wake at the stadium where he first took the world’s breath away with his exploits.

Hundreds of fans began filing Monday morning into the Vila Belmiro, home to Pelé’s longtime club, Santos, where the coffin bearing the remains of “O Rei” (The King) was displayed in the centre of the field, before a funeral procession and private burial scheduled for Tuesday.

Pele died on December 29 after a battle with cancer.
