Argentina celebrated the first anniversary of the death of football legend Diego Maradona on Thursday with ceremonies, tributes, graffiti and emotional posts on social media.

Maradona died of a heart attack at the age of 60 after undergoing brain surgery two weeks earlier. Seven medical professionals who treated the star face criminal charges after a medical report said Maradona did not receive adequate treatment.

“The world has been more horrible for a year now because you’re not here,” Maradona’s eldest daughter Dalma wrote on Instagram.

Maradona’s youngest son Diego Fernando, 8, visited his father’s grave in the private cemetery Jardín de Bella Vista.

“I came over so Dieguito said hello to his father,” his mother Veronica Ojeda told reporters.

One of Maradona’s brothers, Raul Alfredo, also visited the grave of the World Cup winner, who played for Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, ​​Napoli, Sevilla and Newell’s Old Boys.

The four sisters of Maradona attended a religious mass.

The Argentina national team also marked the occasion on social media with the message: “ It has been a year since you became immortal. We will never forget you. ” The country’s football association said the next round of the national championship will take place after the players jointly form a number 10 on the pitch before each game.

Fans have also gathered for tributes on sites dedicated to the great Argentine.
