Barely two weeks after Diego Maradona was released from hospital after treatment for a bleed on his brain, the football legend has died of a heart attack.
Recall that the 60-year-old and greatest footballer of his generation suffered a cardiac arrest at a home in Tigre, Argentina.
Maradona had been recuperating from the removal of a blood clot on the brain.
Journalist Cesar Luis Merlo reports that doctors attempted to revive Maradona.
He played club football for Boca Juniors, Napoli and Barcelona among others and was adored by millions for his brilliant skills.
Maradona was responsible for the infamous ‘Hand of God’ that eliminated England from the 1986 tournament.
