The greatest footballer of his generation suffered a cardiac arrest at a home in Tigre, Argentina.
Maradona underwent surgery earlier this month to remove a blood clot from his brain. He had been recuperating from the removal of a blood clot on the brain.
Maradona, regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, helped Argentina win the World Cup in 1986, the pinnacle of an illustrious career.
He played club football for Boca Juniors, Napoli and Barcelona among others and was adored by millions for his brilliant skills. Maradona was responsible for the infamous ‘Hand of God’ that eliminated England from the 1986 tournament.
RIP To The Legend!!! 💔😪
