Legend Maradona Dead At 60

Argentine Football Legend Diego Maradona has died at the age of 60. Maradona, widely regarded as one of the greatest Soccer players of all time before Drug and Alcohol addiction marred his career, died on at his home in Argentina after suffering a Heart Attack.

Beloved in his homeland after leading Argentina to World Cup Glory in 1986 and adored in Italy for taking Napoli to two Serie a titles, Maradona was a uniquely gifted player who rose from the tough streets of Buenos Aires to reach the pinnacle of his sport. Maradona had recently battled health issues and underwent emergency surgery for a subdural Haematoma several weeks ago.

The Argentine government has declared three days of mourning. A wake would take place at casa Rosada Presidential Palace from Thursday until Saturday.
