The death of Diego Maradona in November 2020 shocked the football world but he left behind a unique legacy following a playing career packed with amazing moments on the pitch and controversy off it. Award-winning football journalist Harry Harris gives his personal perspective on Maradona’s life story as one of only a few British writers to have been granted access to arguably the world’s greatest ever player. He is helped by World Cup winner Ossie Ardiles who was a close friend of Diego’s for most of his life having first seen the boy wonder at close quarters performing football tricks in the warm-up at an international match in 1975 before Diego became a regular in the Argentina side. Harry has captured Ossie’s personal recollections of his close friend in graphic detail, and has also compiled a selection of all the worldwide tributes that poured in after his death.
