Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) had earlier paid a tribute to the legendary footballer charting the highlights of his career.
In a hearty tribute to Maradona, retired Brazillian football star PELÉ reacted said: "Certainly, one day we’ll kick a ball together in the sky above.”

Reports from Argentina that Diego Armando Maradona has died. By some distance the best player of my generation and arguably the greatest of all time. After a blessed but troubled life, hopefully he’ll finally find some comfort in the hands of God. #RipDiego— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) November 25, 2020
