Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning captain Diego Maradona has died after suffering a heart attack at his home.

The 60-year-old is widely regarded as one of the greatest players to have ever played the game, often vying with the likes of Pele, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the conversation regarding the best footballers of all time.

Maradona has been beset by health problems in recent years, though, and earlier this month underwent a successful operation for a blood clot on his brain.

The former Argentina international and Napoli legend subsequently checked into a recovery clinic to be treated for alcohol dependency.

Reports emerged from Argentina on Wednesday afternoon that the legendary forward had died after suffering a heart attack in his home in Tigre, aged 60.

Maradona enjoyed an illustrious career which saw him turn out for Argentinos Juniors, Boca Juniors, Barcelona, Napoli, Sevilla and Newell's Old Boys, with his most famous spell coming at Napoli as he helped the then-unfashionable Italian outfit to two Serie A titles.

The attacker's greatest achievements came with Argentina, though, as he led his country to glory at the 1986 World Cup, scoring the 'Hand of God' and 'Goal of the Century' in one game against England along the way.

After hanging up his boots, Maradona turned to management, including a spell in charge of Argentina where he led them to the 2010 World Cup.

Maradona was in charge of Argentine club side Gimnasia de La Plata at the time of his death.
