Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona dies at 60
Argentine football legend Maradona passed away today due to heart attack.
Diego Armando Maradona (30 October 1960 – 25 November 2020) was an Argentinian footballer and football manager. He is widely known as one of the greatest football players of all time, and by some as the greatest ever. He was also one of the two joint winners of the FIFA Player of the 20th Century award.
This goal was one of the most controversial goals in the history of football, which Maradona scored with his hand to England and became known as "God's hand".
In 1982, a 74-day war broke out between Argentina and Britain over ownership of the Falkland Islands, killing 649 Argentinians.
When Maradona was asked about this particular goal, he said: My hand? No, it was God who took revenge on the people of Argentina from Britain.
Diego Armando Maradona, who was released from hospital just a few days ago after undergoing brain surgery, died today (Wednesday) at his home.
