Maradona to be buried outside Buenos Aires – Spokesman

Argentine football legend Diego Maradona is to be buried on Thursday, November 26, 2020, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, a spokesman, Sebastian Sanchi said.

Maradona, who died of a heart attack on Wednesday at the age of 60, will be laid to rest in the Jardin de Paz cemetery, where his parents were also buried.

Maradona, one of the greatest footballers of all time, died on Wednesday, November 26 at the age of 60, plunging his sport and his native Argentina into mourning.

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 the victory.
