Anyone doubting that Argentina’s Diego Maradona was more than a football player had only to witness the outpouring of popular grief and worldwide tributes after his death on 25 November 2020.
This biography is a ‘classic’ of the genre of football literature, an insight into the culture, politics, and business of the world’s most popular sport. Now published in a revised and updated edition to include the last roller-coaster decade of Maradona’s life.
