Six years later, Pele, the king of soccer, comes to Moscow again. His four-day visit to the Russian capital will start this Saturday.
The visit organizational committee told RIA Novosti that in Moscow Pele would attend a great number of social events.
His visit will start with a ride along the streets of the Russian capital. Pele is planning not only to look at the renewed Moscow, he would like to talk to Muscovites as well. The lucky ones will get a soccer ball autographed by the King of soccer.
On Sunday Pele will do a show training session with young soccer players of a Moscow boarding school for orphaned children and then he will watch a young soccer players' match between two Moscow orphanages.
On Monday evening there will be a solemn reception for representatives of Russian political, creative and sports elite.
Pele will dedicate September 16 to business meetings in the Russian capital.
Putin's Annual Address to the Federal Assembly is scheduled for September 30. Kremlin sources say it will become even more historic and globally important than his 2014 speech
