Saw this on twitter and figured I'd post it in the General section unless its already been posted elsewhere. Hope the surgery goes well.

Good luck to him for the surgery. 

Is it related to his extensive drug use/lifestyle?

That seems to be the theory around it all. I'd imagine it took its toll a while back and they've come out in the open about it now.

2020 has been an absolute shitter of a year for deaths but this would be monumental.

Whether you love him or hate him, I'm certainly not ready to lose an icon like him at the moment.

One of the best ever for me. Come on Diego.

Reports emerging online at the moment, apparently cardiac arrest. If true, then RIP.

Saw the same news. RIP. And to think he had just gotten out of the hospital too.

A short video with highlights of his 1986 World Cup performances. 

Look at some of his teammates misses, Maradona basically carried single-handed Argentina to a World Cup win. Legend.

Sad if true. Also very sad that a lot of us are probably not surprised by this news. Such a troubled individual it seemed, as is often the case with a genius.

He was one Higuain away from not winning it

Fuck. I hadn't heard anything so assumed he'd be ok.

That's shit. Such a horrible loss.

No doubt there will be some bitter people that will mention '86 and the Hand of God, but now isn't the time.

We're talking about one of the greatest the game has produced here, arguably the greatest in the eyes of some.

If you have not watched the Maradona film, I urge you all to give it a watch to gain such an understanding for the man. Brilliant documentary film, really is.

I can't believe it. Honestly am shocked.

R.I.P Diego. Amazing player. Amazing character. Amazing memories.

Sad as fuck news. Icon. He chatted alot of crazy shit in the media, but you'll miss that. 

Great character and a part of a small group of players throughout history who will be looked at as the greatest to have played the sport.

His lifestyle caught up with him in the end, but what a life he must have had. From growing up in a seriously rough neighborhood in Buenos Aires to dragging his country to world cup final.

His Football's Greatest episode remains the best of the series. Recommended for those who haven't seen it.

I've just read this sad news, I feared this would happen when he went in for surgery a few weeks ago, but it is now official. One of the greatest footballers in the world has passed away at only 60 years of age. 

This year just seems to have gotten worse with all the deaths that we have heard of. Maradona was an amazing talent, one of the most naturally gifted footballers the world has ever seen, some will say that he was the best ever footballer. It's really sad to hear this news but for all of us who love football, he will never be forgotten. 

R.I.P. Diego Armando Maradona

Oh wow. Didn't expect that even though I knew about his recent health struggles. He usually fought those off and came back stronger and crazier than before! RIP. :(

Not one of life's great shocks. What a life and career though.

RIP

Weirdly, for all their similarities, George Best passed away 15 years ago today.

Two of the best, and most troubled, footballers ever.

R.I.P little man, you proved that size meant nothing in the age of football and athletics and your skills & magic will live on.

No player in history could do what he did in the 86 World Cup. No other player could have brought the success he did to Napoli. Because of these achievements, it's why he is the greatest. he managed to do this with such a crazy lifestyle. Imagine his head was glued on all his footballing career?
