Football legend Pele marries 'definitive love'

Brazilian football legend Pele has married for a third time in a private ceremony.

The 75-year-old married businesswoman Marcia Cibele Aoki, 50, in a ceremony in the resort of Guaruja, near Sao Paulo, on Saturday.

The couple have been in a relationship for six years.

The announcement was made on Pele's social media channels, and Brazilian television showed parts of the ceremony.

In Pele's words on a social media page, Ms Aoki is his "definitive love".

In Brazil, Pele is tipped to light the cauldron on August 5 at the opening ceremony of the Rio Olympics.
