The report claims that Sandra Regina who left behind two sons was one of seven children Pele named in his will.

Sandra’s part of the estate, as per the report will pass on to the two grandchildren of Pele who met him whiles he was in the hospital.

According to the report, meeting Octavio Felinto Neto and Gabriel Arantes do Nascimento was Pele’s final wish and it was granted as they visited him on December 28.

“We were very excited, it was an opportunity we had been waiting for. Every family has fights and rows, ours is no different, but there are moments when union and love are more important than anything else. We are extremely happy.”
