RIP Diego Maradona

Forever remembered for The Hand of God scenario in Mexico 1970

50 years on and still never forgiven for the blatant cheating

Still, what a marvellous footballer

Cardiac arrest aged 60

RIP

Re: RIP Diego Maradona

He was one of the greats of his time until the infamous Hand of God episode..

Unfortunately looks like it was alcohol related as well, such a sad loss...

Re: RIP Diego Maradona

Yes he liked his alcohol

He was always a little stumpy but he piled the weight on with his love of burgers and alcohol

Re: RIP Diego Maradona

A great footballer, forever remembered by us Brits, for the infamous Hand of God episode.

60 is no age nowadays though.

Re: RIP Diego Maradona

I always remember that match for one of the great goals of any World cup. Enjoy this with the even more legendary South American commentary from the same game:

Re: RIP Diego Maradona

Unfortunately the brilliance of that goal was completely overshadw by that 'hand' for the first goal.

We even fought a war over it.....wink
