There are reports in Argentina that Diego Armando Maradona suffered a cardiac arrest today and has died aged 60.
Argentine newspapers Clarin and Ole claim the World Cup winner suffered a cardiorespiratory arrest on Wednesday morning local time in the town of Tigre.
Maradona only recently had surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain, following a fall.
Pictures showed ambulances outside Maradona’s home.
Following the operation on his brain, there were medical staff who remained at Maradona’s home to keep him under observation.
A cardiorespiratory arrest means his heart stopped and he was not breathing, so had to be resuscitated.
