Football Legend Diego Maradona Dies at Age of 60

Considered as one of the best footballers of all time, Maradona played 91 international matches for Argentina and netted 34 goals.

‘Football icon Diego Maradona has died from a heart attack at home in Buenos Aires, Argentina at the age of 60.’


He is believed to have “single-handedly” won Argentina the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, where he had also scored the infamous ‘Hand of God’ goal against England.

He had been suffering heart problems since 1999-2000. In 2004, the football legend had been treated in hospital for severe heart and respiratory illnesses linked to drug abuse and alcohol addiction.

He had undergone two gastric bypass surgeries to control his weight.
