Greetings from Buenos Aires… Maradona and Buenos Aires are inseparable from each other. Following his death Argentina declared three days of national mourning, and there was a global outpouring of grief among fans of the world’s most popular sport. Maradona, who died of a heart attack at age 60, was a controversial figure. Fans worshipped him for his extraordinary skills on the field, his charisma, and his championing of the poor. Critics pointed to his life of excess, including his drug addiction, philandering, paternity suits, his support of leftist leaders such as Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, and allegations of domestic abuse of a girlfriend. Net-net, no matter how you look at him, Maradona is a larger-than-life persona with a legacy from here to Tokyo – La Boca, Buenos Aires, Argentina
