Diego Maradona dies at 60



Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona has passed away at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack.

The news of the death was known few hours ago.

It was confirmed by the Argentine national team’s official Twitter account as they pay tribute to one of the nation’s favourite footballing sons.

The Gimnasia coach had been hospitalised at the start of November, days after celebrating the landmark birthday, after complaining of low spirits and fatigue.

Tests at the La Plata clinic revealed a blood clot on the brain, which doctors later revealed was operated on successfully.

However, on Wednesday morning he suffered cardiac arrest, and paramedics at the scene failed to revive him.
