Haitian Hollywood actor, Jimmy Jean-Louis has expressed joy at meeting Brazilian football legend, Pele. Jimmy was the host for the 2012 Golden Foot ceremony held in Monaco, Wednesday, October 16 which saw Zlatan Ibrahimović emerge as winner of the international career award, Golden Foot.
Jimmy Jean-Louis who plays in the Hollywood United Football Club, revealed to me: “It was such an honor to meet the King himself. As a kid growing up in Haiti I had no electricity so no TV but everyone knew who Pele was, and anyone knew how to play football in my area was nicknamed Pele, including me. So I find no words to express my feelings. I felt the same way when I met Nelson Mandela.”
