Photographer's Note

DIEGO MARADONA, regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, died today aged 60.

Maradona inspired Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986 when as captain he displayed a level of skill, creativity, strength and desire arguably not seen before or since.

I know it's impossible to compare, but for me, Diego Maradona is the greatest football player ever.

I'm sorry to say that I've never seen him play live, though. My Maradona memories are when I saw him on TV, especially during that amazing World Cup of Mexico'86. Late, late night games, staying up too late just to catch all the magic, then having to do exams the morning after and somehow managing to get away with it.


THIS PICTURE was taken during a trip to Napoli, where Maradona is still revered as a saint, now thirty years after winning the Italian championship for them.

Do not go gentle, Diego, do not go gentle.
