Two-time World Cup-winning Brazil legend Djalma Santos has died aged 84 of pneumonia.
The former Selecao star represented his country 98 times and played at a remarkable four World Cups winning two of them in 1958 and 1962.
Santos widely regarded as one of the greatest right-backs ever was taken to hospital with pneumonia on January 1 and fought for over six months with the condition before passing away in Uberaba on Tuesday.
He started his illustrious four-decade spanning career with Portuguesa in 1948 joined Palmeiras in 1959 and retired following a year-long stint at Atletico Paranaense in 1970 at the age of 41.
Despite defenders having a reputation for regularly racking up cards Santos was never sent off in his career and he is currently one of only two players - Franz Beckenbauer being the other - to feature in three World Cup All-Star Teams.
