Diego Maradona, inarguably one of the greatest players in the history of football, has died following a heart attack. He was 60 at the time of death. Tributes poured in from all over the world as soon as his death news was made public.
Bangladesh cricketers also mourned the death of the Argentine superstar.
Former skipper Mashrafe Mortaza wrote on his official page, "There won't be a bigger superstar than you. Personally, you were the only superstar whom I had the desire to see with my own eyes. Those beautiful goals with left foot will remain ever fresh in my mind. Rest in peace, magician."
Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan wrote, "There are players who are iconic to each generation and then there are players who transcend generations and become icons of the game itself.
Diego Armando Maradona was a player who personified football. He was as famous on the pitch as he was infamous off it. He did everything his own way - right or wrong.
What can't be denied is his unbelievable talent, football acumen and love for the game. Football will continue to grow and amaze us because of legends like him. Rest in peace, Diego!"
Fast bowler Taskin Ahmed posted a photo of Maradona and wrote on Facebook, "Goodbye Maradona, the legend."
