According to the legendary footballer, he was asked to light Olympic Torch personally by the president of the International Olympic Committee Thomas Bach, and the head of the organizing committee of the 2016 Olympics, Carlos Arthur Nuzman, but obligations under the sponsorship contracts may prevent it.

I have a contract that I have to perform. But as Brazilian, of course, I would love to do it, "- said 75-year-old Pele.

Notably, Rio Olympic Games 2016 will be held from 5 to 21 August.
