Diego Maradona celebrates after leading Argentina to win the 1986 World Cup

Diego Maradona, one of the greatest soccer players of all time, has died at the age of 60, according to multiple reports on Wednesday.

The Argentinian legend, who led his country to a World Cup victory in 1986, underwent brain surgery to remove a blood clot earlier in November. He was still involved in the game, coaching the local club, Gimnasia y Esgrima, since 2019.

Maradona, who coached the Argentina national team from 2008 to 2010, previously survived two heart attacks in addition to undergoing gastric bypass surgery.
