Heartbreaking Final Footage Of Diego Maradona Shows What A Man He Was

Heartbreaking Final Footage Of Diego Maradona Shows What A Man He Was

Final footage of Diego Maradona is both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

The footballing legend passed away aged 60 after suffering a heart attack on Wednesday. He had only recently been released from hospital after undergoing an operation for a blood clot to remove a blood clot in his brain.

In the last video before his death, taken by a neighbour at the estate of San Andres, Maradona can be seen walking out of his rented house accompanied by three men.

Two were helping him walk, with the World Cup winner putting his hand on the shoulder of one - and there was another man following behind with a chair for 'El Diego' to sit on if he needed to.

Despite looking unwell and struggling to walk on his own, Maradona had time to acknowledge a little girl who was with her mother.

"Hola Diego" saying she can be heard saying in the video. Maradona turned to wave at her, who responded by adding,"Me saludó Maradona" - which translates to 'Maradona greeted me."

In his last ever interview before his death, Maradona bared his soul - talking about what football gave him and the love he experienced.

He also expressed his wish to meet his mother, 'Dona Tota' again in heaven after her passing nine years ago.

"I am going to be eternally grateful to the people. Every day they surprise me, what I experienced in this return to Argentine football I will never forget.

"It exceeded what I could imagine. Because I was out for a long time and sometimes one wonders if people will still love me, if they will continue to feel the same.

"When I entered the field in Gimnasia on the day of the presentation I felt that love with people is never going to end.

"I went and I am very happy. Soccer gave me everything I have, more than I ever imagined. And if I hadn't had that addiction, I could have played a lot more.

"But today that is past, I am fine and what I regret the most is not having my parents. Always make that wish, one more day with Tota but I know that from heaven she is proud of me and that she was very happy."

Maradona's lawyer, Matias Morla has launched an investigation after claiming the first ambulance took thirty minutes to arrive on the scene.

His manager Stefano Ceci told Radio Kiss Kiss he thought Maradona "was tired and let himself die, he no longer really wanted to live".
