"I love playing tennis and today one of the greats of the game dropped by to say hello. Roger Federer, you are a champion on the court and in life," the Daily Mail quoted Pele, as writing on his Twitter page.

Federer had earlier said on Facebook: "Today I had the great honour of meeting the legendary Pele."
