Pele, Brazil's triple World Cup-winning legend, met his own waxwork at the New York Cosmos' league season opener.

The 73-year-old was a former Cosmos player when the team were at their height in the mid-1970s.

To celebrate the first game of the season for the team in the North American Soccer League, Pele was not only in attendance, but his waxwork, normally in a Brazilian pride warm-up suit, was brought in.

The only question is whether it looks much like Pele. To help you decide, here is a picture of Pele from back in his days with the Cosmos.
