Maradona’s Body Arrives Presidential Palace In Argentina
Hundreds of people were already lining up to pay their respects as Maradona’s body arrives Argentina, the soccer legend died while recovering from a brain operation yesterday 25th November 2020.
Renowned for inspiring Argentina to win the World Cup in 1986, Maradona was most loved at club level for his spells with Boca Juniors in his homeland and Napoli in Italy, where he won the club’s only two Serie A titles.
“You are eternal in every heart in world football,” the Twitter account of the Argentina national team posted alongside a picture of Maradona holding the World Cup.
Maradona is remembered for his masterly composure on the ball, but he was also famous for his frequent lack of control both on the field and off.
He struggled with addiction, notably to cocaine, and with his weight, in contrast to the more clean-cut image of Brazilian legend and three-time World Cup winner Pele.
