World football legend Diego Maradona has died at the age of 60.

The former Argentina international is regarded as one of the best players in the world. He single handedly helped his country to win the 1986 World Cup.

Maradona played club football for Boca Juniors, Napoli and Barcelona during a career where he won many trophies.

Who is Diego Maradona?

Maradona is regarded by many as the greatest footballer of all time thanks to his abilities on the pitch.

In a career spanning two decades, he scored more than 300 goals at club level and 34 goals for Argentina.

Maradona became infamous in England for his ‘hand of God’ moment against England in the 1986 World Cup.

During the game, Maradona out-jumped England keeper Peter Shilton and punched the ball into the net with his hand. However, the ref didn’t see the handball and the goal was awarded. When asked afterwards about the moment he said “a little with the head of Maradona and a little with the hand of God.”

The match finished 2-1 to Argentina with Maradona scoring a second goal and they later went on to win the whole tournament.
