Maradona dies of heart attack
Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona died of a heart attack on Wednesday (Nov 25), his lawyer said.
Maradona, 60, had recently battled health issues and underwent emergency surgery for a subdural haematoma, a blood clot in the brain, several weeks ago.
President Alberto Fernandez immediately announced three days of national mourning in the South American country.
He suffered a heart attack at his home in the outskirts of Buenos Aires, Argentinian media and acquaintances of the former player said.
