PIC: No big deal, sure it’s only Pele wishing Bohemians a happy birthday on their 125th anniversary

He’s kind of a big deal.

125 years ago last month, a group of aspiring footballers met in the Phoenix Park and formed a club to take part in the association football scene that was just up and running in Dublin at the time.

Well over a century later, that club is still going strong and they’ve just had a man that's widely considered as the greatest footballer of all time wish them well in what is a historic year for Bohemian FC.

Pele, of course, is no stranger to Dalymount Park having played there in February 1972 when his club Santos took on a combined selection from Bohs and Drumcondra in front of 30,000 fans crammed into Dalymount Park.

Getting best wishes from Pele on your birthday? We guess you could call that Brazil-iant.
