A very sad day for all Argentines and for football. He leaves us but does not leave, because Diego is eternal. I keep all the beautiful moments lived with him and I send my condolences to all his family and friends. RIP.

– This clip, watched millions of times over, captures the vitality of Maradona the player showed. Football came easier to him than just about anyone. Live is life indeed.

– Maradona’s teammate at the 1982 World Cup, Mario Kempes, was the player who inspired Argentina to the 1978 World Cup, which a teenage Maradona was disappointed to have missed out on.
