Maradon died of a heart attract on Wednesday aged 60 from 30 October 160 to 25 November 2020.

Only around his relatives and close friends attended the final ceremony on Thursday.

But huge crowds from all over the world to pay their respect, with many weeping, blowing kisses and praying as they filed past his coftin.

He is not a national hero he is a world's or earth's hero.

Football legend Maradona has been buried in a private ceremony after a day of emotion scenes in the Argentina capital Buenos Aires.

Maradona's coffin draped in Argentina's national flag and football shirt, bearing his trademark number 10 on the back was on public display at the presidential palace on Thursday.

There were reports of tear gas and rubber bullets being used as officers in riot gear struggled to hold back the crowd.

One of the greatest football players of all time, Maradona had a troubled personal life marked by cocaine and alcohol addiction. He had successful surgery on a brain blood clot earlier in November and was to be treated for alcohol dependency.

Maradona, who also played for Barcelona, was captain of the national team when Argentina won the 1986 World Cup, scoring the famous "Hand of God" goal against England in the quarter-finals.

To score the goal, Maradona used his hand to deflect the ball past England goalkeeper Peter Shilton, but the referee did not see it. It remains one of the most controversial World Cup moments.

Former Tottenham midfielder Ossie Ardiles, who played alongside Maradona at the 1982 World Cup, told the BBC "he will be remembered as a genius in football".

Maradona never made excuses for his missteps, though that is not the same as atoning for them. As he told the filmmaker Emir Kusturica in 2008, he held himself responsible for all that he had done, good and bad. But he knew, too, that at some point a line had to be drawn between Maradona the person and Maradona the player.

His legacy is a complex one a brilliant, troubled individual, one who suffered pain but inflicted it, too, a boy and then a man who crumbled and cracked under the pressure of a situation he did not have the tools to survive.

But his meaning is straightforward. Maradona encapsulated an ideal, he infatuated towards nation, he turned a mere game into a form of art. The pibe is a quintessentially Argentine complex but it is one that generates global understanding the impish, improvised brilliance of the innocent.

Respect and salute to Diego Maradona rest and peace and give power to his family.
