Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona has passed away at the age of 60 at his residence in Tigre after he suffered a heart attack.

Maradona, who is famously known for winning the 1986 World Cup title, underwent a successful surgery for a blood clot in the brain earlier in November. "The good thing is that Diego is together, Diego is solid. Diego has gone through maybe the most difficult moment of his life and I think it was a miracle that they found this bleeding in his brain that could have cost him his life," his lawyer, Matias Morla, had reportedly said. However, Maradona was admitted to the Ipensa clinic in Buenos Aires last week with anaemia and dehydration. Later, he reportedly suffered a cardio-respiratory arrest and was left in a serious condition.Maradona, who led Argentina to victory in the 1986 World Cup, was the coach of Argentine SuperLiga club Gimnasia. The legendary player has suffered two heart attacks in the past and had contracted hepatitis.
