Now do this put-the-text-back-together activity.

This is the text (if you need help).

Football fans said goodbye to football legend Diego Maradona. He died of a heart attack, aged 60. Fans cried and blew kisses as they walked past his coffin. An Argentina flag and his number 10 football shirt covered his car. There is three days of national mourning for him. A fan said his hero Maradona represents "Argentinianess".

Maradona is one of the greatest players ever. He captained Argentina to win the 1986 World Cup. He scored the famous "Hand of God" goal against England, and the greatest goal of the twentieth century. Barcelona captain Lionel Messi said: "Maradona...is eternal." Pele wants to play with Maradona, "in the sky".
