    Brazilian football great Pele has married for a third time in a private ceremony.

    The 75-year-old Pele married businesswoman Marcia Cibele Aoki, aged 50, at a ceremony on Saturday in the resort of Guaruja, near Sao Paulo.

    The couple has been in a relationship for six years.

    The news was released on Pele's social media channels and Brazilian television showed parts of the ceremony.

    In Pele's words on a social media page, Aoki is his "definitive love."

    In Brazil, Pele is tipped to light the cauldron on Aug. 5 at the opening ceremony of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

    At the closing ceremony of London Games in 2012, the three-time World Cup winner appeared in Rio's presentation to promise to welcome the world at the next games.
