One of the greatest footballers of all time and Argentina's favourite son, Diego Maradona, has died in Buenos Aires at age 60.
Regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of the game, Maradona became a household name after inspiring his country to World Cup glory in 1986.
He took center stage at the tournament with a memorable performance against England where he scored an iconic goal that he later described as the "Hand of God."
The diminutive forward out-jumped legendary keeper Peter Shilton and punched the ball into the net. Despite the obvious handball, the goal was allowed to stand because the referee did not see the foul.
Later in the game he scored one of the best goals in history after weaving his way past seven English defenders.
At club level, he led Italy’s Napoli to their first Serie A league title in 1987, a remarkable feat as the team overcame the country’s northern heavyweights Juventus, Inter and AC Milan. He would go on to win Europe’s Uefa Cup and a second Italian league title with the club.
A true legend of the game.
