Pele fans pay respects into the night in timelapse video

STORY: The two-hour-long timelapse video showed mourners joining a line to see Pele's body lying in an open casket as day turned to night.

Pele died on December 29 at the age of 82 after suffering from colon cancer.

The Brazilian coastal city of Santos, which the sporting giant turned into a byword for soccer brilliance during a glittering club career, is set to bid goodbye to its hero with a 24-hour wake.

On Tuesday (January 3), a procession carrying his coffin will pass through the streets of Santos, ending at the Ecumenical Memorial Necropolis cemetery, where he will be buried in a private ceremony.
