Diego Maradona ‘spotted playing football in the clouds in his famous number 10 shirt’ by obsessed fan


AN ARGENTINE football fan has claimed to have spotted the late Diego Maradona playing football in the sky. 

Natali Rios, 26, from the city of Parana in the province of Entre Rios, filmed the moonlit clouds after watching a documentary the legendary player before later realising the night sky formed his distinctive shape — complete with his famous number 10.

The video was filmed in the early hours of Saturday after Maradonna died the previous Wednesday. 

Natali said she recorded the footage after thinking the moon and clouds looked beautiful.

But she later realised the video and images show what she believes to be the silhouette of Maradona created by the contrast of the night sky and the clouds.

The silhouette appears to have Maradona’s characteristic hair do and is holding up both his arms as if celebrating a goal.

The number 10 is momentarily seen just under the moon before the clouds move.

Natali said: “Maybe we miss him so much that we see anything now? I don’t know, but it is still magic.”

The images have caused a stir on social media among Argentians who are grieving the loss of their national hero. 

One fan said: “Swear to me this is not edited, this guy was not just anyone.”

Another said: “This cannot be real. There has to be trickery here?”

But one other fan wrote: “I choose to believe.”

His death comes two weeks after surgery following a bleed on the brain.

Maradona — who turned 60 last month — has suffered a long battle with his health forcing him to make numerous trips to hospital in recent months.

His last words before he died were “Me siento mal” or “I don’t feel well” in English.

Maradona had gone back to bed after having breakfast with his nephew Johnny Esposito and telling him he was going to lie back down.

A nurse treating him at home later called an ambulance but he could not be saved, according to local reports.

Argentine President Alberto Fernandez declared three days of national mourning in honour of the star, who was a cultural icon and national hero.
