Football fans have paid their respects to football legend Diego Maradona on the streets of Argentina's capital Buenos Aires. An Argentina flag and his number 10 football shirt covered his car. Thousands walked past his coffin at the Presidential Palace. They cried, blew kisses to their hero and prayed. Maradona died of a heart attack, aged 60. There is three days of national mourning for him. One fan said: "Maradona represents Argentinianess."

Maradona is one of the greatest players ever to play on a football pitch. He captained Argentina to win the 1986 World Cup. He scored the famous "Hand of God" goal against England, and a goal voted as the greatest of the twentieth century. Barcelona captain Lionel Messi said: "Maradona will never leave us because he is eternal." Brazilian legend Pele said he hoped to one day, "play together in the sky" with Maradona.
