Argentina legend Diego Maradona has passed away on Wednesday after suffering a cardiac arrest at the age of 60.

After the surgery, doctors revealed he was in pain and that he was sedated to keep off his drug addiction at bay.

The surgery came days after he went into self-isolation after his personal bodyguard tested positive for COVID-19.

He later on joined top European clubs including Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla and Argentine based club Newell.

Other than being Argentina national team coach, the 60-year-old coached Gimnasia before meeting his death.
