One of the greatest footballers ever, Argentine legend Diego Maradona has passed away at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack.

According to Goal, Maradona had been hospitalised at the start of November, days after celebrating his 60th birthday, after complaining of low spirits and fatigue.

Maradona was operated on after doctors revealed a blood clot on the brain and was subsequently released 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.

However, on Wednesday morning he suffered cardiac arrest, and paramedics at the scene failed to revive him.

Rest in peace to a legend of the game.
