“Thanks for having existed, Diego. We will miss you for life.”
Maradona died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack at his home in Tigre, just north of Argentinian capital Buenos Aires.
One of Argentina’s most famous and beloved sons, Maradona led his nation to victory in the 1986 World Cup with some of the greatest individual displays the tournament has ever seen.
Outside of his homeland, he was notably worshipped in the Italian city of Naples, helping Napoli to their first ever Serie A title in 1987 and repeating the feat three years later.
The diminutive playmaker also won the Coppa Italia and UEFA Cup during his time in Italy.
Elsewhere, Maradona enjoyed success with Barcelona in Spain and Boca Juniors in his homeland.
