Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona have reportedly died after suffering a heart attack. The former Argentina attacking midfielder and manager had a cardiac arrest at home.
He had successful surgery on a brain blood clot earlier in November and was to be treated for alcohol dependency. He struggled with health problems in recent years.
The former Barcelona star was pictured in recent weeks after surgery, reportedly on the mend.
He won the 1986 World Cup with Argentina and is thought of as arguably Argentina’s greatest player.
He played for Barcelona and Napoli during his club career, winning two Serie A titles with the Italian side.
Flocks of fans turned up at an Argentinian hospital in recent weeks to wish their hero well as he battled to survive the brain surgery.
