Pele, Rihanna Meet at the World Cup and Tweet About the Encounter

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 12, 2014

A World Cup newsmaker and someone who's actually made legitimate World Cup news met on Saturday in Brazil. 

Brazilian legend Pele, widely considered the best footballer of all time, spent some time with pop star Rihanna. 

Pele will always be in the news during the World Cup because he lifted the World Cup trophy three times. 

Rihanna's been making World Cup headlines simply because the singer miraculously turned into a very vocal pundit on Twitter during the tournament. 

Case in point: here, here, here and here

And yes, Rihanna did (of course) tweet about her encounter with footballing greatness.
