Pele has released a diamond statue created from his own DNA that you can actually purchase for the price of $7,500.

Pele recently announced through his own official twitter account that he had released a special world cup souvenir.

The Brazilian legend said: ".@BrilhoInfinito and I have launched an incredible diamond collection made from the carbon contained in my hair."

The statue itself is of the former football star performing his trademark bicycle kick and the figurine is made of diamonds that actually contain Pele's DNA, extracted from his hair follicles. 

A total of 1,238 of these special edition statues have been created, one for every goal scored in the incredible career of the brazilian football legend and you could get your very own for the mere price of $7,500.
