Pele shirt sold at auction

A yellow Brazil football shirt worn by Pele during the 1970 World Cup final has been sold for £66,500 at Christie's London auction yesterday.

The shirt was the most expensive sale in an auction of memorabilia belonging to former England captain Bobby Moore and Brazil's Mario Zagallo.

Zagallo was part of the first Brazilian team to win the World Cup in 1958 and was again in the side when they retained the trophy four years later.

He built up a collection of some 1,500 shirts which he exchanged with fellow players during his career.
