On Wednesday, the world was greeted with the news of the death of Barcelona and Napoli legend, Diego Maradona.
The World Cup winner, 60, died in his home in Tigre before ambulances that were notified by the care nurse could arrive, it was gathered.
Maradona had been on close surveillance since undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.
In the morning of Wednesday, after he had breakfast, went back to bed, telling his nephew, Johnny Esposito, that he wants to lie down again, “I don’t feel well.”
An autopsy is currently being conducted on the corpse of the deceased to ascertain the cause of death.
Prosecution chief John Broyad, speaking as Maradona’s body was taken to the morgue for an autopsy, said: “The forensic police began their work at 4pm. No signs of any criminality or violence have been detected.”
“The autopsy is being carried out to determine beyond any doubt the cause of death but we can say at this stage that everything is pointing to natural causes.”
