Pele: 'Fifa needs honest people'

The Brazilian football legend has given his reaction to Sepp Blatter's decision to step down.

Speaking exclusively to the BBC, he said: "I want to see football put people together, stop the war. That's my position because this is what football put people together. What happened with the corruption, this is not my problem."

Pele spoke to the BBC in the Cuban capital Havana, where he was attending a friendly match between the New York Cosmos and the Cuban national team, which the Americans won 4-1.
