Argentine Football Hero, Diego Maradona, Is Dead

Argentine football star,  Diego Armanda Maradona is dead.

Maradona died at the age of 60 following a heart attack.

The soccer legend and Gimnasia coach had been in and out of the hospital over observed  cardiac challenges.

He was hospitalised since November, days after celebrating the landmark birthday.

He had earlier complained of low spirits and fatigue.

Tests conducted at the La Plata health clinic revealed a blood clot on the brain, which doctors said was operated on with success.

Maradona was subsequently discharged from hospital as an outpatient to continue his convalescence, which he carried out in his dwelling in a private neighbourhood near Tigre, northern Buenos Aires.

But in morning of today,  he suffered cardiac arrest, and paramedics at the scene were unable to revive him.

Maradona began his professional career with Argentinos Juniors at the age of 16 and went on to be considered one of the greatest players ever to step onto a football field.

The diminutive left-footed forward went on to represent Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla and Newell's Old Boys as a player, and the likes of Racing Club, Dorados, Gimnasia and the Argentina national team later as a coach.
