Diego Maradona was so many things, and sometimes a madeleine comes back in our twitter thread.

Often, we see this video of Diego in the warm-up.

And she reminds us of how much of a magician he was with the ball.

Will never get tired of watching Diego Maradona's iconic warm-up routine for Napoli 💙

Diego Maradona is no more.

The former Argentina player and coach died on Wednesday at the age of 60 from cardiac arrest, according to an Argentinian spokesperson.

On November 12, Maradona returned home after eight days of hospitalization, following an operation for a hematoma on the head.

In recent years, his life had been punctuated by many health problems, some of which were linked to excesses of all kinds which sometimes made him flirt with death.

Hero of the Albiceleste in the victorious 1986 World Cup, he was considered by many to be the best footballer in history.

Maradona also scored for life on Napoli, with whom he won Serie A and the UEFA Cup.
