LEGENDARY MARADONA’S DEATH- Argentinian football legend Diego Maradona has passed away at his home in Tigre after suffering a cardiac arrest.
The cause of death was an “acute secondary lung edema to exacerbated chronic heart failure,” the source said.
Heart failure is a chronic condition that gradually damages the heart’s ability to pump blood. Fluid can build up in the lungs as a result – a condition known as pulmonary edema. It is an increasingly common problem that can be fatal.
Earlier in November, Maradona had undergone surgery for a brain clot.
A spokesman told news agency AFP.
The Argentine Football Association confirmed Maradona’s death on Wednesday and posted a short message on its social media platforms.
The confident player, best known for leading Argentina to the 1986 World Cup title, was 60.
He also is known to be one of the finest of his time.
