Maradona tributes: 'Naples is crying tonight'

Diego Maradona … in his own league, otherworldly, a supreme genius, yet supremely flawed … he could warm up better than many could actually play the game … the ball was his, the game was his … the pleasure was ours.

To borrow a Sinatra phrase, it’s Maradona’s world … we just live in it.

The football world has gone into mourning after the death of Argentinian football legend Diego Armando Maradona, with tributes pouring in from all over the globe, Al Jazeera reported.

Long considered one of the greatest players, if not the best, the 60-year-old superstar who led his country to a World Cup title in 1986 died on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack in the city of Tigre.
