Brazil legend Gylmar passes away

Brazil legend and World Cup winner Gylmar dos Santos Neves has died at the age of 83 after a heart attack.

The former Santos and Corinthians goalkeeper had been in poor health for several years following a stroke in 2000 and suffered a heart attack last weekend and never recovered.

"As well as being a great goalkeeper, he was a worldwide hero and an example as both a player and a citizen," said Jose Maria Marin, the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

"The Brazil team he represented so well will pay homage in the upcoming friendly against Australia on September 7."

Gylmar began his career at Jabaquara, a small club in his home town of Santos, but was there for less than a year before being snapped up by Corinthians.

He played for the São Paulo side from 1951-61, winning three Paulista state championships and going down in history as the in goalkeeper to concede Pelé’s first professional goal.

Alongside Pelé and other stars such as Coutinho and Pepe, Gylmar won the Copa Libetadores twice, the World Club Championship twice, and five Paulista state championships during seven years at Santos.

He represented Brazil on 104 occasion and won both the 1958 and 1962 World Cups.
