Tributes to the late, great Diego Maradona have been streaming in from all corners of the globe this week.
One of the greatest footballers of all time, Maradona spent seven glorious years with Napoli where he almost singlehandedly transformed the club's fortunes. Diego helped Gli Azzurri to Serie A titles in 1987 and 1990, still the only two Scudetto crowns in their history.
Diego is unanimously adored by the Napoli faithful, to the extent that Naples city mayor Luigi De Magistris and Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis confirmed that there are plans afoot to rename the San Paolo Stadium in Diego Maradona's honour.
Maradona will also be honoured on the big screens around the Italian top-flight this weekend:
