A Pelé lookalike was spotted wearing a Santos shirt, apparently riding the subway in Brazil.

The picture is said to have been taken on a metro system somewhere in the country on Thursday morning.

Santos play in Vila Belmiro, a bairro inside the city in the state of São Paulo.

The real Pelé was at the club for almost two decades, scoring 619 goals in 638 appearances, before semi-retiring and moving to New York Cosmos in 1975.

It’s claimed the Pelé lookalike had nothing to smile about, but the team recorded their first win in six games on Saturday, grinding out a 3-2 scoreline against Atlético Mineiro despite being reduced to ten men.

It was a result that ended a barren run for the side, who had previously netted just one point from a possible fifteen.

After a disappointing end to the campaign, they lie mid-table, in 9th place, with just one match left to play.
