Hoje despeço-me de um amigo e o Mundo despede-se de um génio eterno. Um dos melhores de todos os tempos. Um mágico inigualável. Parte demasiado cedo, mas deixa um legado sem limites e um vazio que jamais será preenchido. Descansa em paz, craque. Nunca serás esquecido.🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/WTS21uxmdL

It is pertinent to mention here that one of the legendary footballers of all time, Diego Armando Maradona passes away aged 60 who had been struggling with health issues.
According to the details, he had undergone a brain surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain earlier this month.
He, reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest which becomes the reason of his death.
Born in 1960 in Lanús, Buenos Aires, started his professional career for Argentinos Juniors before playing for Boca Juniors.
Earlier this month, Maradona had undergone brain surgery to remove a blood clot.
His personal physician had said that the Argentinian recovered well as he “laughed and grabbed my hand” a day after the procedure.
“Diego is without any type of neurological deficit, without any type of complication associated with surgery,” Luque had said.
“Diego is fine, he is with analgesia. We are trying to make him recover progressively. They are decisions of the therapy doctors, with whom we are in full agreement. We are working together, along the same lines, and Diego has been responding very well.
“He is in a post-operative period and the moods are difficult to assess. However, when we removed the drain today he laughed, looked at me, grabbed my hand, and the first impression is it is favourable, but it is difficult to evaluate.”
