Soccer legend robbed in Brazil?

Soccer legend Pele was held at gunpoint by a band of youths and robbed of a gold necklace, his cell phone and a watch. The incident -- which took place on June 13 but only made public now -- occurred near the city of Santos in southern Sao Paulo state. Pele's car was stopped near a slum by at least 10 young men armed with pistols and knives, the respected news magazine Veja reported on its Web site. Dam not even the worlds greatest soccer player is safe.
