Soccer Legend Pele -- Burgled in Brazil!

He spent his entire career eluding men who were trying to dispossess him, but Pele apparently couldn't outrun a gang of robbers in his native Brazil.

Reports from Sao Paulo say that a ten-strong gang of thieves armed with guns and knives took Pele's gold necklace, a phone, and a watch during a traffic jam in Santos in the state of Sao Paulo. Soccer's greatest legend -- real name Edison Arantes do Nascimento -- wasn't hurt.

The incident occurred June 13, but was just made public ... by Pele himself. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
