Diego Maradona is dead

Just heard on CNN. Sad news. Aged 60. Heart attack.

More likely all the substance abuse, i.e. HIS hand!

Re: Diego Maradona is dead

A great player, though I never forgave him for "The hand of God" during the 1986 World Cup.

Re: Diego Maradona is dead

Extremely gifted but he had his demons. I am not sure many/or any player(s) would admit "the hand" infraction during a World Cup match - given that the referee never caught it

Re: Diego Maradona is dead

Hm, I wonder how many other Argentinians would have "qualified" for this level of treatment.

"There are suspicions that the star's convalescence at home might not have met the conditions of his discharge from the clinic, such as a 24-hour team of nurses "specialised in substance abuse", the on-call presence of doctors and a stand-by ambulance equipped with a defibrillator.

Officials want to know how often Dr Luque, who was the footballer's personal doctor, went to see Maradona at his house."

I expect most would have been happy just to see a doctor.

You sure it's him and not his brother?
