Ball king Bailey will celebrate his 80th birthday in two days. He talked about it in an interview.
Bailey said that God treated himself well, allowing him to be so sober when he was 80.
Bailey said: "First of all I have to thank God. He made me come to this matter healthily. He made me win everything in my career. He made me still so sober at the age of 80. Although I am not that much. Smart, but the brain is clear, haha."
"All the good things we have in life are because God believes that we are worth having. Perhaps I have done many sad things in this life-I defeated many opponents on behalf of Santos and defeated on behalf of Brazil. Many opponents, losers and fans must have many people who feel sad because of this, but this is life."
"I hope that when I am truly ascended to heaven, God will be able to welcome me back like everyone in this world who welcomes me and accepts me."
