The term 'legend' is thrown around a lot these days, whether it be in sports, academia, entertainment, or whatever field takes your fancy. Once in a while though, that term isn't just apt, it fits like a glove.
Rest in peace Maradonna. Absolute giant of the game and a hero to all 🙏 pic.twitter.com/Z2iUMelZRw— Sunday League Hipster 🌹 (@HipsterManager) November 25, 2020

Of all the moments of Maradona being shared, my fav is when he was in charge of Gimnasia, they played Newell's Old Boys away and they gave him a Godfather like throne to seat on pitch side he was that powerful. They won 4-0 as well pic.twitter.com/FHQ6M68zNi— Ciaran (@speltcia) November 25, 2020

Earliest TV memories are the 1986 World Cup, and the highlight screens peeling away with their bright flag-coloured borders, usually with Diego Maradona in the highlights. A sad day.— Samit Basu (@samitbasu) November 25, 2020
Diego #Maradona, the legend has left us. He was a magician who showed us why football is called “The beautiful game”.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) November 25, 2020
My condolences to his family, friends and fans.
So the awful news is now official. As @footballmc tells me, George Best too died on a 25th of November. Best and Maradona, two of a kind, of the the rarest kind. Bless their memories, now and forever.— Philippe Auclair (@PhilippeAuclair) November 25, 2020
"We'd all love to be like him, even though we'd have to forget every stupid thing he did in his life, because he is the way he is, he is a whole, he is genuine."— Lewis (@LGAmbrose) November 25, 2020
Arsène Wenger always sums it up better than anyone else.
So sad to hear of the death of Maradona but he was one of those few people genuinely larger that life, whose legend and legacy will live forever. What a player and what a life.— Rob Fielder (@ademir2z) November 25, 2020
