Football Legend, Maradona Turns 60 During Sobering Isolation

Argentina great Diego Maradona turns 60 on Friday in far more sober circumstances sheltered in self-isolation to protect him from the coronavirus pandemic, VOICE AIR MEDIA reports.

The football legend,having suffered two heart attacks in the last 20 years and contracted hepatitis, Maradona's precaution after a bodyguard started displaying coronavirus symptoms earlier this week is understandable.

A life of overconsuming cocaine and alcohol have taken their toll on the mercurial talent's health.

"It was impossible that this lad would turn out well," said former international and Boca Juniors teammate Hugo Perotti earlier this year.

Perotti was referring to Maradona's early fame that set him on a path to brilliance and glory but also addiction and almost tragedy.

He was born in a poor Buenos Aires neighborhood on Oct. 30, 1960, Maradona quickly marked himself out as a special talent.

Since then, this charismatic and contradictory man has fallen many times only to rise again from the abyss, and always in his unique and inimitable way.

Defiant and ingenious, macho, a loyal friend and spiteful enemy, Maradona has always been magnetic.


"At 18 he couldn't walk around in Africa. A plane was stuck because the runaway was full of people," said Perotti.

"It was in 1981, when there was no internet, mobile phones, nothing. He surpassed every human and normal barrier. And I think he paid the consequences of all this."
