FOOTBALL legend Pele has been attacked and robbed at gunpoint, according to reports.

The 67-year-old star, widely considered the world's best-ever player, had gold jewellery, a mobile phone and an expensive wrist watch stolen by the 10-strong gang when his chauffeur-driven car was besieged in a traffic jam in Guaruja.

The thieves, who also robbed other drivers and passengers, are said to have recognised Pele as one of their victims before fleeing.
