Hand of God: Maradona’s Body Arrives Presidential Palace

The remains of legendary footballer, Diego Maradona, has arrived at the presidential palace in Buenos Aires for a period of lying in state.

Recall that the Argentine football legend died while recovering from a brain operation on Wednesday at the age of 60.


The arrival of Maradona’s body at the presidential palace has brought hundreds of people lining up to pay their respects to him.

Renowned for inspiring Argentina to win the World Cup in 1986, Maradona was most loved at club level for his spells with Boca Juniors in his homeland and Napoli in Italy, where he won the club’s only two Serie A titles.
