Wednesday evening 25 November witnessed one of the most somber days in football as Diego Maradona left this world aged 60.
While Maradona’s passing sent the world into sad mourning, there was also an immediate feel-food, entertaining, beautiful and touching series of video clips to celebrate Maradona.
Check them out below:

What was his actual style on the pitch like?
Incredible that this isn’t a career highlight reel... this is just Maradona at the 1986 World Cup!— Dan Walker (@mrdanwalker) November 26, 2020
