Terrible news coming from Argentina as legendary Diego Maradona has passed away in his home at the age of 60 years old. 

We bring the terrible news of Diego Maradona’s passing with great sorrow. The Argentina legend suffered a cardiac arrest at his house during his recent recovery from brain surgery he underwent last month. Diario Clarin was the first one that reported on Maradona’s new episode but they refused to reveal the truth of his condition.

After minutes of looking into the incident that made local medical services rush to the scene, his death was reported at 13:18 local time in Argentina. The whole football world mourns the passing of a legendary player who gave his life to this beautiful sport and defined an entire generation with his talents. From the moment he started playing football at a semi-professional level, everybody could see he would become one of the greats.

Ronaldo’s last mention of Diego Maradona.

Earlier last month, Cristiano Ronaldo sent a cheeky birthday message to Diego Maradona on his 60th birthday. For the Portuguese forward, the Argentina legend is one of the idols he looked up to when he was growing up. In many ways, the Portuguese forward alongside Messi were the ones who picked up Maradona’s baton.

Before Cristiano and Leo arrived, Diego and Pele were considered the best players in football history. It should be interesting to see what reaction comes from the Portuguese star. We should keep an eye out for whatever he posts on his social media accounts and report on it as soon as it happens.
