Historic picture; important lessons: 1986 world cup photo of Maradona, Pele, and Platini. Then Maradona campaigned against drugs, Platini against corruption, and Pele stood for the rights of the children. Time passed by. Maradona became a drug addict. Platini was banned from the football administration for corruption. And Pele refused to accept his biological daughter Sandra Regina Arantes, who was born as the result of his affair with a housemaid (in 1964). Arantes filed a lawsuit against Pele. She won the case with DNA test results and later wrote a book, “The Daughter the King Did Not Want”, that described her mother’s affair. Two important lessons: 1) Nobody is perfect; 2) Appearances can be deceptive.
