Football world mourns Carlos Alberto

One of football’s true greats, Carlos Alberto, passed away on Tuesday.

The Brazil legend – captain of the famous 1970 World Cup-winning side and scorer of one of the most iconic goals ever seen during that tournament – died following a heart attack, aged 72.

The news was confirmed on his own Facebook page, with a post reading: “With great regret we inform you that, on the morning of this Tuesday (25/10), our eternal captain, Carlos Alberto Torres, passed away in Rio de Janeiro.”
