Who is the best footballer of all time in the world? — Brazil’s Pele or Argentina’s Maradona — this debate has been going on all over the world for ages. They even themselves have been involved in that debate many times. But now one legend has gone beyond all controversy. Diego Armando Maradona left this world on Wednesday after suffering a cardiac arrest. Pele, on the other hand, shocked over the death of the ‘Hand of God’ Maradona.

Pele reacted emotionally on Twitter when he learned that the Argentine ‘Hand of God’ was no more. “What sad news. I lost a great friend and the world lost a legend. There is still much to be said, but for now, may God give strength to family members. One day, I hope we can play ball together in the sky,” wrote Pele, the Brazilian football legend. 

Maradona suffered a cardiac arrest at his home in Argentina on Wednesday afternoon. This football magician was taken to the hospital but could not be saved.
