Canning House commemorates Diego Maradona

Diego Armando Maradona, who became known as El Pibe de Oro (The Golden Kid) for his immense - some say unmatched - talent with a ball at his feet, passed away at his home in Tigre, Buenos Aires on 25 November 2020.

Canning House here pays tribute to the life and legacy of Argentina's foremost sporting hero and national icon, whose colourful character both on and off the pitch will not only be missed by the people of Argentina, but fans around the world.

Argentina today enters three days of national mourning.

Our thoughts are with the Maradona family, his loved ones, and all those affected by his passing.
