Football icon Diego Maradona dies at 60 following heart attack

After his retirement, Maradona fought drug addiction, alcohol abuse and obesity. In an improbable comeback he was named national coach in 2008, where he had mixed results and failed to translate his playing skills into coaching expertise. Before becoming coach of his home country in 2008, he coached Argentine first-division clubs Deportivo Mandiyu in 1994 and Racing Club in 1995.
