Pelé, who died on Thursday at the age of 82, never played in Mallorca. His club, Santos, played a number of friendlies against Spanish teams, but Real Mallorca was not one of them. The association he had with the island was chiefly through a Mallorcan journalist, Miquel Vidal, who himself passed away in January 2021.
