Pele to marry for third time with his partner Marcia Cibele Aoki

Rio de Janeiro: Brazilian football legend Pele is getting married for the third time, tying the knot with his partner Marcia Cibele Aoki on Tuesday.

Pele, 75, met his 42-year-old partner in New York in the 1980s but the couple did not start dating until 2010, Pele told a newspaper.

Pele was previously married to Rosemeri Cholbi, with whom he had three children -- Edinho, Jennifer and Kelly - and Assiria Nascimento, who gave birth to twins Joshua and Celeste.

Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Pele is regarded by many as the best footballer in history.

He scored 1,281 goals in 1,363 matches for Santos, New York Cosmos and Brazil, and played in the national team's 1958, 1962 and 1970 World Cup triumphs.
