Soccer legend Diego Maradona has died at the age of 60, CBS Sports soccer insider Fabrizio Romano has confirmed.

Maradona won the 1986 World Cup with his native Argentina and is considered one of the greatest players ever, author of arguably the best goal ever and the iconic “hand of God” goal, both scored in the same knockout stage match against England in that ’86 tournament.

He passed away as a result ff what’s being described as a heart attack, according to Clarin. Maradona had recently undergone brain surgery. He just turned 60 on Oct. 30.

A native of Lanus and raised in the poor area of Villa Fiorito, Maradona started his career at Argentinos Juniors before joining giant Boca Juniors. He made the move to Europe to play for Barcelona in 1982 and also played for Napoli, where he had his best years, as well as Sevilla before returning home. He played five matches for Newell’s from 1993-94 before ending his career with Boca Juniors (1995-97).

Maradona became a manager after his playing career and coached the Argentina national team and had been coaching Gimnasia de La Plata until his death.

His career was filled with unbelievable moments on the pitch as well as troubling ones off of it, battling substance abuse and financial problems but bringing the Argentine people and fans of the sport countless moments that will forever live in their memory.

Luis Miguel Echegaray was joined by Andrés Cantor to remember the extraordinary life of Diego Maradona on an emergency episode of the Que Golazo! podcast.

German prosecutors have reportedly reopened a case against Bayern Munich player Jerome Boateng after new information emerged about his alleged assault of his ex-girlfriend Kasia Lenhardt following her suicide.

The case was initially opened in 2019, but was closed last summer after Lenhardt indicated she did not want to proceed with her claims.

The former German international is accused of assaulting her in October 2019, more than a year before their highly-publicized split which preceded the model’s tragic death.

Images of Lenhardt’s torn earlobe, an injury that resulted from an alleged assault by Boateng were shared on social media and quickly deleted hours before the 25-year-old model was found dead in a Berlin apartment.

“The proceedings were resumed on February 10, 2021, because we received new information as part of the death investigation in Berlin that could give indications of a possible continuation of the proceedings,” Anne Leiding, a member of the Munich prosecutor’s office, was quoted as saying.
The Polish model died by suicide just a week after breaking up with the German World Cup winner, whom she had been dating for more than a year.

Speaking about their breakup, Boateng accused the model of sabotaging his previous relationship with an ex-girlfriend named Rebecca, as well as blackmailing him into staying with her.

The news of Lenhardt’s sudden passing broke when Boateng was in Qatar preparing to play in the FIFA Club World Cup with Bayern.

He immediately left the team’s camp and returned to Germany after receiving the news.

The center-back, who won the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and the Champions League with Bayern in 2013 and 2020, is also accused of assault in a separate case involving his ex-partner Sherin Senler, but the case is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic restrictions.
