Diego Maradona, one of the greatest footballers of all time, died Wednesday at the age of 60.The Argentine World Cup-winning captain died of a heart attack, having undergone brain surgery earlier this month to remove a clot lodged between his brain and skull. Maradona will forever be known for his “Hand of God” goal against England in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final in Mexico, when he appeared to use his hand to push the ball into the net before later swerving through the English defenders for a memorable second goal that sealed victory.
