Sao Paulo :

Brazil football legend Pele is all set to kick start his third innings as a married man. He will tie knot with his girlfriend of six years Marcia Cibele Aoki on Tuesday.

Pele, 75, told O Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper that this time, he has found "love forever."

They had met in 1980s, but realised their love for each other only after 2010 when they crossed path in an elevator in Sao Paulo.

Aoki, a 42-year-old businesswoman, has been by the three-time world champion's side for nearly all his public appearances since 2012, as well as during his repeated hospital visits in recent years.

Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Pele is held by many as being the greatest footballer in history.
